SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -- The Spokane Valley City Council was packed for a Thursday meeting to discuss regulating nearly nude coffee stands. No formal decision was made.
However, all Spokane Valley City Council members said they would like an ordinance regulating the coffee stands.
Some residents who want to see the nearly nude stands regulated were happy to hear from the council.
“Oh I’m really happy. We were all clapping in our seats,” said resident Leah Fotheringham.
Sarah Birnel owns a XXX coffee stand about 100 yards from City Hall. City Councilman Rod Higgins could not believe she would build her stand so close to city hall.
“You know like he (Higgins) said I stuck a stick in their eye,” said Birnel, “I totally didn’t mean to do that. And I apologize right now if that’s how it came across.”
The city clerk said the city attorney will now need to draft a resolution for the XXX coffee stands. The resolution will then go on a future agenda.
