Outdoor smoking violations targeted

December 13, 2007|Martha Groves

The City Council has ordered the city attorney to write an ordinance that would make business owners criminally liable for knowingly allowing customers to smoke in outdoor dining areas.

The recommendation was made after the city got complaints from nonsmoking patrons and restaurant employees that many owners were allowing, and sometimes encouraging, smoking on their patios in spite of the city's year-old policy that makes those areas smoke-free.
