The Murfreesboro City Council adopted the good hygiene policy Thursday:
“No employee shall have an odor generally offensive to others when reporting to work. An offensive body odor may result from a lack of good hygiene, from an excessive application of a fragrant aftershave or cologne or from other cause.”
But the policy loosely defines “Body Odor”. City Councilman Toby Gilley said the standard would be the same one a U.S. Supreme Court justice used to identify pornography.
“We’ll know it when we see it,” Gilley said. “We’ll know it when we smell it.”
