There’s a new smoking ban in Claremont, Okla. as earlier this week the city council voted 6-3 in favor of banning the use of all tobacco products, e-cigarettes and vapor devices on city-owned and operated land, which includes parks, playgrounds and golf courses.
The ban does not extend to city streets and sidewalks and does not include any fines for violators. The ordinance simply directs law enforcement to issue a warning.
New signage is expected to be installed in the affected areas in the near future to inform residents and visitors of the new rule, according to TulsaWorld.com.
Claremore has just over 19,000 residents and is located about 27 miles northwest of Tulsa.
