Loveland considers new park gun rules

LOVELAND - The state's concealed carry law is prompting a change in city park rules to allow certain firearms in those areas.

The city code now forbids guns on park property.

However, state law allows them to be carried in those areas with the exception of restrooms and shelters, which are considered government buildings, Loveland officials said.

Council is considering an ordinance that would amend park rules to allow certain firearms, but the city would still forbid rifles, shotguns, paintball guns, air rifles, air pistols and archery equipment.

Meeting for Madeira Veteran's Memorial

MADEIRA - A community meeting to discuss plans for a new Madeira Veterans Memorial is 7 p.m. today at Madeira City Hall.

There will also be a paved-stone dedication area with monuments and flags.

For information, call Kathy Bechtold, 271-5472; Les Lefevre, 561-9208; or Bob Tuke, 272-2121.
