Syracuse, N.Y. Smoking Ban Moving Forward

Null

After hearing complaints earlier this year, the Syracuse City Council will formally debate whether the city should ban smoking in all public parks. 

Councilors Khalid Bey and Bob Dougherty, the same pair who asked the city lawyers to review a smoking ban proposal in February, will introduce a proposed smoking ban next week.

According to Syracuse.com, a vote on the matter could take place as early as June 9. If passed, there will be a $50 violation for smoking and $100 for littering cigarette-related materials. What is not included will be the creation of a smoke-free zone downtown.

Syracuse is located in Onondaga County, in central New York. It has a population around 150,000—a metropolitan area over 600,000—and is home to Syracuse University.
