Iowa City officials have revised the official permit for Occupy Iowa City protesters. In the new permit, city officials have altered tent restrictions.

The original permit said only six-person tents would be allowed on College Green Park. An appeal was submitted by the Occupy Iowa City general assembly, and after heated discussion between councilors and demonstrators at last week's work session, the permit was revised to allow tents for up to 10 people.

Occupiers said the permit needed to be revised in order to put up an Arctic tent in preparation for the protest to proceed into the winter months.

Other permit amendments that were appealed include the right to build a permanent structure on the green, which were not approved by council.

The permit may be renewed after four months.
