Jefferson City Approves No Smoking Signs for Parks
JEFFERSON CITY - The Jefferson City Parks and Recreation Board approved a new no smoking sign Tuesday night that will be put up in Jefferson city parks.
The sign reads, "Healthy Lungs at Play". It is designed to keep citizens from smoking around children.
In February, KOMU 8 News reported the board had started the process a few months prior that would implement no smoking in or around public parks. It voted to create a recommendation, prohibiting smoking within 25 feet of playgrounds or pavilions. The recommendation is not a city ordinance and people cannot be penalized.
