Punxsutawney Public Smoking
11/14/2013
 
 
 

Smoking in public places in Punxsutawney almost became illegal this week.  Borough Council voted to ban it but the Mayor quickly vetoed.  Under the ban smoking would be off limits in public areas such as parks and playgrounds.  Violators would be subject to fines up to 300 dollars but the Mayor said no to the idea.  Borough Council Members say the Mayor doesn't understand the dangers of second hand smoke.  The Council President says he plans to raise this issue again at the next meeting if they get a majority plus one vote that will override the Mayor's veto.
