Councilman opposes smoking ban for Cleveland golf course



Published: Thu, April 14, 2011 @ 11:40 a.m.

CLEVELAND (AP) — A Cleveland councilman says a proposed smoking ban at city parks and recreation areas should not become par for the course at city-owned links.

Councilman Jeff Johnson says the ordinance should not apply at Highland Park Golf Course. He tells The Plain Dealer newspaper the city facility would have a harder time competing with other privately-owned courses if golfers aren’t allowed to light up during a round.

The measure that would ban smoking at Cleveland parks, cemeteries and within 150 feet of city buildings was introduced last week by Councilman Joe Cimperman. He indicates he has no problem with discussing an exemption for Highland Park.
