City Council Member Chuck Warpehoski is working on an exciting yet controversial new piece of legislation—an outdoor sm king ordinance for A2. The ordinance would mirror the existing county language that limits where people can smoke outdoors—away from building entrances, transit stations, etc.—but with a twist.

The proposed ordinance is currently undergoing review and will be voted on by city council before the end of the year. Direct your input to the councilman at email@example.com.
