Alderwoman Jenifer Ringwood has written a proposal to Common Council President Jim Noble asking that the City of Kingston ban smoking in all City owned parks and within 50 feet of a City owned building.
"As a representative of the people, I feel we must do all that is within our power to safeguard an individuals' most valued resource - their life," Ringwood said in her memorandum to Noble. "To do less would be negligent on our part."
Some lawmakers feel that smoking should be baned on all City owned property.
I'm personally in favor of this, kids should not be subjected to cigarette smoke or any other smoke while innocently playing at a park or any other City owned property. Kudos to Alderwoman Ringwood who continues to bring forth legislation to improve the quality of life for all Kingstonians.
