A little more than a year after it rejected a smoking ban in parks, the Burlington City Council voted to ban smoking in the city’s beaches and parks.

It’s not a complete ban, five parks will have designated smoking bans. The ordinance contains no language regarding penalties for violating the law.

Burlington has a population of just over 40,000.
