Police Issue Summons For Smoking In Park

While it becomes illegal to smoke indoors starting Saturday, many people may not realize it's already against the law to smoke outdoors in Grand Junction, in city owned parks that is. Police issued summonses to two men for allegedly violating the city's smoking ordinance this week. The two apparently refused to extinguish their cigarettes after being approached by police in Whitman Park. Even though they are outdoor facilities, parks were included when the city passed ordinance 3540 in 2003 prohibiting smoking in all workplaces and public places.
