Council adopts public smoking ban; enforcement starts in Januarymwclogo2.jpg
This past Monday, Town Council unanimously approved an ordinance banning smoking on all Township-owned property, including Town Hall, the Library, and all of Cherry Hill’s public parks and playgrounds. The new law takes effect Dec. 20, and will begin with a 30-day educational campaign/warning period. Full enforcement will begin in late January, and violators will be subject to fines up to $150 for a first offense. I am proud to see this new policy become law, as it benefits the health and welfare of our entire community – especially our children – and gives our residents the right to breathe clean air while they enjoy all our Township has to offer. For more information on this important change, click here.
