Smokers in Vergennes could soon have fewer places to light up.
Tuesday the city council will consider a measure to ban smoking on the city green and at the city pool. Alderman Mike Ouellette argues that smoking is a personal choice and that residents should not be subjected to second-hand smoke. Earlier this year Vergennes students pushed the council to make the move.
"I think this is a great thing that they have done. It shows that they are interested in their community and willing to step forward and take action," Ouellette said.
The proposal would also ban smoking at city-sponsored events.
