A plan to ban smoking in Tonawanda has passed. It was announced late Tuesday night, by unanimous decision, that smoking will no longer be allowed at parks throughout the city.

According to MetroSource News:

There is no punishment set for violators and council members say they're hoping people will comply voluntarily.

The "ban" is an effort to get people to live a healthier life and expose the dangers of smoking. The Mayor of the City of Tonawanda is hoping people will heed the warnings and try to refrain from smoking at parks.
