Cottage Grove council unanimously rejects smoking ban in city parks

Email

Cottage Grove City Council members snuffed out a proposed smoking ban in city parks.

Council members unanimously opposed a policy that would have prohibited smoking in city parks with some exceptions allowed, including for private events and at the city-owned River Oaks Golf Course.

Council concerns included how to enforce a policy, which unlike an ordinance would have no legal penalty.
