Smoking ban in Vergennes

Posted: Updated:

No more lighting up in downtown Vergennes.

City aldermen voted to ban smoking downtown and at the green, as well as at city-sponsored events.

Local leaders were prompted to take action after kids made a plea at an aldermen meeting in April.

Violators will not be punished, however city officials hope smokers will comply out of goodwill.

The ban also outlaws chewing tobacco.
