• City smoking ban reach is extended

    As expected, the Pacific Grove City Council approved changes to its “no smoking” ordinance which extended the prohibition to all parks, recreation areas, playgrounds, and the Farmers’ Market. As of the first reading of the ordinance, it also bans smoking in the public areas of the golf course, but not on the course itself.
    The changes, proposed by Mayor Carmelita Garcia, received unanimous support from the Council., Mayor Garcia, speaking by telephone from Washington, D.C. where she is attending a conference, thanked the members of the Golf Links Advisory Committee for working with her on the ordinance.
    A small alteration suggested by staff which would have extended the ban to 25 feet around public buildings from the current 20 feet was rejected.
    A second reading will be held at a future City Council meeting.
