(Holyoke, MA) — The Holyoke City Council is considering a ban on smoking in city parks and outside municipal buildings. Two separate bills were filed Tuesday by Ward 2 Councilor Anthony Soto. He said parents have complained about people smoking at playgrounds. He also said people don’t want to walk through a cloud of second-hand smoke to enter city buildings because of staffers taking cigarette breaks. The measures were referred to committee for further discussion.
