Expanded smoking ban considered for Fargo parks


FARGO (KFGO-AM) - A Fargo Park Board committee has started discussion on expanding the Park District's smoking ban. The District now bans smoking within 25 feet of playground equipment and at family events.

Board President Joe Deutsch told the Facility Committee he'd like to see a total smoking ban on all park property. Deutsch says he wants any revised ban to be enforceable and have "everybody comfortable" with it."

Other committee members said a complete ban would be complicated and difficult to enforce. The committee agreed to fine-tune the idea and will work with Fargo-Cass County Public Health on a proposed policy and report back to the Facility Committee next month.
