MSNBC: A woman gardening wearing only a yellow thong and pink gloves has brought neighborhood complaints and new rules from a housing authority in Colorado.
Boulder Housing Partners plans to amend its rules so that tenants cover up when they're outside.
Several passers-by told Boulder police earlier this week that 52-year-old Catharine Pierce was topless while tending to her yard. Last year, she was threatened with eviction for gardening wearing only pasties and a thong.
Police responding to Wednesday's reports decided Pierce wasn't breaking any laws.
Robert Pierce said he'll fight changes that would keep his wife from gardening outside topless, which is legal under state and city law.
"They're making a big mistake," he said.
Boulder Housing Partners Executive Director Betsey Martens didn't return a phone call Friday seeking details on how covered residents would have to be.
She told the Daily Camera newspaper that people have complained for years about the couple often going outside wearing only thong underwear.
Robert Pierce said the new rules wouldn't discourage the couple. "We'll stay the way we have to stay," he said.
The City Council is scheduled in April to consider expanding the city's anti-nudity ordinance, but a draft proposal to make it an offense for women to go topless in public was removed.
City spokesman Patrick von Keyserling said the housing authority is a separate entity and that the city can't dictate the agency's rules.
Judd Golden, chairman of the Boulder County chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, said neighborhoods are generally able to make their own rules for residents to follow.
But he said the ACLU does not support limits that are more restrictive than the law.

Google: Rose McGowan has signed up to star as a femme fatale in Conan.
The Black Dahlia star and ex-girlfriend of Marilyn Manson will play an evil half-human, half-witch in the new movie adaptation of Conan The Barbarian, Variety reports.
Jason Momoa stars as Conan, opposite Rachel Nichols as love interest Tamara in the film, directed by Marcus Nispel.
GI Joe's Said Taghmaoui plays the leader of a gang of thieves who is saved by Conan and later offers him aid, while Stephen Lang, who was the evil military man in Avatar, has been cast as the main villain of the movie.
He will play a ruler in search of a queen whose blood will bring life to the demonic minions of a long-lost god.
Mickey Rourke was apparently in talks to play Conan's father Corin, but Ron Perlman has now been cast in the role.
Shooting on the film began on Monday in Bulgaria, and the movie is expected to be released in 2011.
