STEVENSVILLE, Mont. (AP) — The mayor of a western Montana town has vetoed the portion of a weapons ordinance passed by the town council banning open and concealed carry in parks.

The Ravalli Republic reports in a story on Saturday that Stevensville Mayor Gene Mim Mack says he vetoed that section because he wanted the town council to focus more narrowly on parks.

The council on May 23 adopted an ordinance allowing open and concealed carry except in buildings owned by the town, at public assemblies, in schools and at parks.

The town has three main parks and several smaller neighborhood parks.

Mim Mack says the parks serve a wider area than the town so the potential ban is more of a regional decision.

Council members are scheduled to meet Thursday.
