Profanity could be illegal at Ogden parks

OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Ogden residents may need to hold their tongues, because cussing at parks could earn a citation if city officials have their way.
OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Ogden residents may need to hold their tongues, because cussing at parks could earn a citation if city officials have their way.

Park officials want the City Council to pass an ordinance that would make foul language part of the disorderly conduct provision. First there would be a warning, but continued use of profanity would be misdemeanor.

City Public Services Director Jay Lowder says the goal is to encourage sportsmanship and proper behavior at recreational events and city parks. He says there have previously been disruptions at adult and youth recreation events.

The Standard-Examiner reports that the City Council will vote on the ordinance at an upcoming meeting and will post signs alerting people to the law if it passes.
