Greenfield wants state to repeal smoking ban

Aug. 20, 2010

Greenfield aldermen on Tuesday passed a resolution asking the state to repeal its smoking ban.

Council members before and after the ban took effect often voiced concern about the ability of the city to enforce the law. They also are worried about the financial burden the ban could have on bar owners.

The resolution passed 3-2, with Aldermen Karl Kastner and Shirley Saryan opposed.

"I feel it is a good thing for our lungs," Saryan said of the statewide ban, which took effect last month.
