Occupy group in Ohio may be barred from camping

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Occupy protesters will no longer be allowed
to camp in a city park in southwest Ohio city.
A letter delivered to protesters Tuesday from Dayton's city
manager says protesters must now follow city rules, that city parks
close at sunset and nothing may be left overnight, including tents
and sleeping bags.
The letter thanked Occupy Dayton for moving from Montgomery
County's Courthouse Square, where the protesters had camped since
October. They moved to Dave Hall Plaza, a city-owned park, because
a holiday event was held last weekend on the square.
The county also delivered a letter outlining a proposed county
resolution that would prohibit camping on the square. A county
spokeswoman says commissioners are expected to consider that
proposal next week.
Protesters could not be reached for comment.
