City Council has endorsed pursuing a bylaw to restrict smoking outside around Civic facilities such as parks and playgrounds.
A good idea, but tough to enforce… Here are some suggestions for enforcing an outdoor smoking ban at City facilities.
#5. At the next parade, city councilors walk the route with squirt guns and those little electric fans to deter smokers.
#4. At the next Civic event hire actors to mill thru-out the crowd giving stern looks of disapproval to smokers.
#3. Kick up the water spray park to provide smoke deterrence cover for all of Ft. Geo. Park.
#2. The City could lead by example: At the next fireworks display, instead of lighting them up, just a have a picture of fireworks and a guy on the loudspeaker going “phew, phew, phew!”
#1. Free Nicorettes at all Civic events.
