Whether that turns out to be a punishment or a reward depends on how the city decides to handle the situation brought to light by a 9NEWS viewer.

She spotted shirtless city workers posing with strippers at the impromptu car wash outside the Diamond Cabaret last week.

Photos sent to the 9Wants to Know investigators Friday afternoon show a city truck parked outside the Diamond Cabaret in downtown Denver. Women in bikinis are perched on the hood of the truck and others are standing nearby. In one photo, a shirtless man in work pants and boots poses for a photo in front of the truck. Another shirtless man is seen in another photo outside the strip club.

The viewer who took the photographs said the shirtless men returned to two marked city vehicles after at least 20 minutes outside the strip club around 2 p.m. on Friday.

The city promised "appropriate action" on Friday.

On Monday, the city announced that four Department of Public Works employees are on what's called "investigatory leave." That means they are not allowed to come to work, but are still being paid.
