If you’re going to walk on the Wildwood boardwalk, you may have to be properly dressed.

Wildwood officials will vote on June 12 on rules that would require visitors to pull up their pants, put on a shirt and wear shoes while on the town's boardwalk.

The saggy pants measure requires the waist band of pants, shorts, swimsuits, and skirts to be no lower than 3 inches below the waist to prevent the exposure of skin or underwear.  Shirts would be required between 8 p.m. and until 5 a.m.

Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. tells The Press of Atlantic City he's tired of complaints about people who "walk around with their butts hanging out."

Troiano says the ordinance is designed to maintain the boardwalk's friendly-family appeal.
