Proposed ordinance would separate public urination, indecent exposure

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Approval of a new city ordinance would create two separate offenses for indecent exposure and public urination and defecation.

Currently, City Code lists indecent exposure and public urination under the same section, and the section is cited whether someone is charged for either offense.

With approval of an ordinance amending City Code 8-5-6, those charged with public urination would not be considered sexual offenders.

Cody Graham — the University of Iowa Student Government liaison to the Iowa City City Council — submitted the proposal.

City councilors will vote on the first consideration of the ordinance at their meeting on March 6.
