CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) -- The Iron County Commission is scheduled to vote Monday on an ordinance establishing new rules for outdoor parks and recreation areas.

Among the regulations under consideration would be a complete ban on alcohol in areas such as Three Peaks and Woods Ranch.

Other proposed rules deal with such issues as shooting guns, noise levels and speed limits for all-terrain vehicles.

Iron County parks and recreation director Charlie Morris says the new alcohol restrictions might not be popular with everyone, but it will make the public areas safer.

Commissioner Alma Adams agrees. She says with modern-day liability issues, it's a good idea to ban alcohol at parks.
