Wellington City Councilmen discussed a possible ordinance that would restrict tobacco use at little league fields throughout the city.

Wellington’s baseball leagues host about 661 players, and several individuals involved in the activities have voiced concern over the possibility of second-hand smoke damage.

A community advocate presented information from studies that indicate second-hand smoke can cause asthma attacks, heart attacks and various other harmful situations.

The advocate said, “Smoking is not a right, it is a privilege.”

Councilmen discussed putting up “No Tabacco” signs around all city fields.

Notes:

  • Councilmen tabled approval of a home occupation permit for K & M Spraying until proof of certification is provided.
  • Councilmen discussed creating new rules governing the use of park pavilions. The pavilions have recently been left in poor condition. The new rules would include using grease catchers on grills.
