KANAB, Utah – A ban on bikinis at the city pool is expected to be revised, ending a short-lived prohibition on the popular two-piece pool attire. But that does not mean that lifting the G-rating is going to lead to poolside G-strings.
“My recommendation is going to be no thongs or string bikinis,” said City Councilwoman Nina Laycook, who called the original dress code an oversight.
Laycook said the policy will probably be revised at the council’s meeting June 24, bringing Kanab back in line with city pools even in the state’s most conservative communities.
“We were so engrossed with safety and health issues we overlooked the wording,” Laycook said. “We are addressing that now by amending the policy.”
Bikinis that don’t reveal too much will be allowed, as will Speedos for men when the new public pool â€” known as the Cowboy Water’n Hole â€” opens July 4 in the community just north of the Arizona state line.
