SOUTH JORDAN, Utah (AP) -- After complaints from South Jordan residents about inappropriate magazines in grocery stores -- the city council approved a resolution.

Last night, the South Jordan City Council approved a resolution that encourages "all businesses, schools and public institutions" to adopt a "child-appropriate standard."

The resolution sets a city-wide policy that requests "sexually explicit material" remain out of sight. However, a resolution is a request and not a requirement of businesses.

Parents says the resolution is vital as they fight to keep their children from being exposed to certain pictures on magazine covers.

With the addition of South Jordan, 15 cities in Utah have adopted resolutions for community standards and children.
