In an effort to protect children while at play, the town of Greenwood, Neb. has enacted a complete smoking ban within its parks.
The use of all tobacco products has been banned by the town, a move which will provide “adults the opportunity to be non-tobacco using role models.”
While there is no monetary or civil fine, violators can be asked to leave park property by law enforcement.
“This policy reflects a commitment at all levels of Village government to improve the health of residents and visitors,” said Marcela Fiala, the village’s clerk.
Greenwood is located in southeastern Nebraska and is home to 562 residents, according to a 2012 population estimate.
