SAN ANTONIO, Fla. (AP) - Registered sex offenders aren't welcome in this small city north of Tampa.
The San Antonio City Commission made that official Tuesday, adopting an ordinance that bans sex offenders from living within 1,500 feet of any school, day care, public or private park and bus stop.
That means the ban, which applies to offenders who have been convicted of certain sexual crimes against children, covers essentially the entire city.
There are less than 1,000 residents in San Antonio, including one registered sex offender. Officials say he won't be affected by the new ordinance because he moved in before it was approved.
