TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Tempe City Council is considering new regulations aimed at cracking down on college parties.

Phoenix television station KPHO reports that the council will take up the issue at its next meeting in April. If the proposed regulations are approved, they could take effect in May.

Tempe is home to Arizona State University. City police say the neighborhood where they get a lot of party complaints is just off Hayden Lane and McClintock.

As part of the proposed changes, officers would be able to ticket party hosts the first time they are called out. If no one answers the door, police would be able to leave a ticket anyway and partygoers could also be cited. Fines could go as high as $1,500.

Officials say the changes would affect all parties, not just those specific to ASU.
