City to employees: Wear underwear
« on: June 17, 2009, 11:26:26 AM »
BROOKSVILLE, Fla. - The City Council of Brooksville, Fla.,
has approved a citywide dress code requiring city employees
to wear underwear, deodorant and properly-fitted clothes.
The dress and appearance policy, which also requires all
tattoos and scars to be covered up during work hours, was
approved 4-1, with only Mayor Joe Bernardini voting against
the dress code due to concerns about interpretation and
enforcement of the new rules, the St. Petersburg (Fla.)
Times reported. "They said you had to wear undergarments,"
Bernardini said, "but who's going to be the judge of that?
Sometimes when it comes to certain people going bra-less,
it's obvious. But who's staring to see if that person
doesn't have underwear on?" However, officials said the
dress code is part of an overhaul of the city's policy
toward its employees that was developed with help from
city officials, attorneys and other sources. The officials
said they want public employees to maintain the city's
"public image." "The policy is there if something becomes
an issue or problem," City Manager Jennene Norman-Vacha
said. "Then we want to be able to address it. It's just
good policy."


My Comments:  This is just another example of people in power worrying about the petty things while the important stuff goes unattended.  It amazes me how government officials do this crap all the time.  What a waste of time and money.
