Oshkosh, WI -- The Oshkosh City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to give police the power to ban repeat criminals from city parks. The parks director says vandalism and public intoxication have become growing problems. Oshkosh's ordinance would also allow police to suspend troublemakers at Lakeshore Municipal Golf Course and other community gathering places. It's modeled after a ban in Appleton that has cut down on crime in city parks.
