WISCONSIN DELLS, WI (WTAQ) - Window shoppers in Wisconsin Dells would no longer see obscene T-shirts, under a proposed city ordinance. 

Mayor Brian Landers says he's been trying for many years to get stores in the tourist haven to voluntarily remove offensive shirts from their front windows. 

A new ordinance has a $500 fine for violators.

The offensive shirts could still be sold -- but they'd have to be moved inside, and customers would be warned before they enter a store that mature merchandise is available. 

A final vote on the measure is expected in the next few weeks.
