TOPEKA, KS (WIBW/CNN) – Many citizens in Topeka saw a naked man walking on their city's streets.

Now, Topeka police and the Shawnee County, KS sheriff's department that this activity is legal, and one city councilwoman is planning to introduce a new city ordinance.

“How could somebody do that? There are so many kids around here – why would somebody do that,” upset resident Jason Wassinger asked. “I don't walk down the street or mow my grass walking like that.”

Last week, Wassinger and his family saw the naked man walking down a Topeka road. His wife called police, but they said there was nothing they could do.

“I had constituents call me who said there's somebody nude walking in our district and the police say they can't do anything about it because there is no ordinance,” Councilwoman Michelle De La Isla said.

Many Topekans still can't believe one can walk down a street naked on Topeka streets, which is why De La Isla is doing something to try and change it.

"What I'm trying to do is create a tool that way T.P.D. or any sort of emergency tech is able to assess somebody,” De La Isla said. “We want to make sure this doesn't happen in a school because nobody wants their kids to be exposed to naked people."

Wassigner agrees with her proposed ordinance.

“I think it's good,” Wassinger said. “I mean, it should have been done a long time ago.”

De La Isla will introduce the idea to the Topeka City Council at a meeting on Sept. 9.
