NORTH RICHLAND HILLS — City officials have buttoned up a loophole regarding nudity in response to news reports about scantily clad waitresses in nearby cities.Fort Worth and Lewisville officials have been fielding complaints about Redneck Heaven restaurants in those cities after waitresses wore only body paints and pasties on their breasts in outdoor eating areas.Fort Worth, Lewisville and North Richland Hills all have ordinances that restrict nudity and where sexually oriented businesses can locate. The cities’ ordinances also detail the body parts that must be completely or opaquely covered, namely groin areas, buttocks and female breasts.Lewisville City Council members voted July 15 to change their ordinance, clarifying that body paint, tattoos, liquid latex, and dyes do not count as “opaque” coverings. Fort Worth’s legal department is reviewing the city’s ordinance about whether to recommend changes, city spokesman Bill Begley said. Fort Worth City Council members have said they want further restrictions.North Richland Hills City Council members voted unanimously Aug. 12 to add to their ordinance that paints, tattoos, latex and dyes “shall not be considered opaque covering.” Violators can be fined up to $500, city spokeswoman Mary Peters wrote in an email.North Richland Hills has no Redneck Heaven, but officials wanted to head off any problems should such a restaurant decide to locate in the city, City Manager Mark Hindman said. Hooters, a tamer version of this restaurant genre, has an eatery at Boulevard 26 and Northeast Loop 820 in the city.“We don’t have any issues currently,” Hindman said. “It’s just preventative.”Opening a sexually oriented business is not easy in North Richland Hills, a largely middle-class Fort Worth suburb of 64,000 people. Under the city ordinance a sexually oriented business cannot locate within 1,000 feet of a church or synagogue, a school or licensed day care center, a residential area, a public park or library, or another sexually oriented business.
