A new smoking ban is coming to Trumann, Ark., after the city council approved it by an 8-1 vote during its meeting on Monday. The council not only passed the first reading of the bill, but waived procedural rules and had it read simply by title for the required second and third readings, as well as passing an emergency clause.
The bill bans the use of all tobacco products as well as e-cigarettes and other electronic smoking devices on city-owned property, including within all enclosed buildings and in parks and the areas around municipal buildings, as well as in city-owned vehicles, according to a report by the Poinsett County Democrat Tribune.
There has been no public posting of the ordinance, as the city does not appear to have a website or any social media presence.
Trumann is located in northwestern Arkansas and has a population of approximately 7,500 residents.
