Council wants all parks in Garfield to go smoke-free

Posted on

Garfield Town Council proposed an ordinance to ban smoking in all public parks and recreation facilities owned or leased by the city and all property owned or leased by the city where the public is invited or individuals gather for recreation activities, including any parking areas or driveways. The ordinance also prohibits smoking in all municipal buildings and within a 35 ft. radius of the front entrance of all municipal buildings, or in any car registered by the city.
