WILDWOOD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) —Taking the wild out of Wildwood.
Officials are considering rules that would require visitors to pull up their pants, put on a shirt and wear shoes while on Wildwood’s boardwalk.
The proposed regulations are in an ordinance scheduled for a vote on June 12.
The baggy pants measure requires the waist band of pants, shorts, swimsuits, and skirts to be no lower than 3 inches below the waist to prevent the exposure of skin or underwear.
“I don’t need to know if a guy wears Fruit of the Looms or boxers or briefs,” Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. told 1010 WINS’ Steve Sandberg. “Pull your pants up, we’re not here to look at your rear end.”
Shirts would also be required between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m.
“We’re just trying to bring some decency to the boardwalk,” Troiano said.
