VT City Considers Outdoor Smoking Ban


Burlington, VT – Vermont's largest city is considering an outdoor smoking ban. WAMC's Tristan O'Neill reports...

Today, the Burlington City Council is looking at an ordinance that would exempt smoking on private property and on stretches of sidewalk leased by the city to cafes and restaurants.

The Burlington Free Press reports that if approved, the resolution would be forwarded to a committee for refinement.

A separate ordinance under consideration would set aside part of City Hall Park for smokers.
