EVERETT, Wash. (AP) -- Snohomish County officials say they've had no complaints lodged about scantily clad baristas in the year since tougher rules were adopted.

County Auditor Carolyn Weikel tells The Daily Herald that not only have there been no complaints, no one has applied for a license to run an adult-business coffee stand.

A year ago, the county adopted new rules spelling out what constituted lewd conduct by baristas. The rules also say stand owners are responsible for employee behavior.

Those rules apply to unincorporated areas in the county, but Everett and Lynnwood also changed city laws in 2009 after hearing complaints about drive-thru coffee stands.
