Ordinance bans Halloween smoking
According to the ordinance, “Main Street” means the street, the sidewalk, any parking lot or store between Weatherlow and Roop streets, the Uptown park to be constructed on Main Street and any place where children may be located during the Safe and Sane Halloween event.
The prohibition will be in effect between 3 and 5 p.m., on the day the event is held, regardless of what the date is.
The city council made the following statement of purpose and intent:A. There is an ongoing need on the part of the City of Susanville to protect the health of its residents as part of the protection of the public peace, safety and welfare of the citizens of the City of Susanville.
B. Passive smoking is the inhalation of smoke, called second hand smoke, from tobacco products used by others when tobacco smoke permeates any environment causing its inhalation by people within that environment.
C. The negative health risks of second hand smoke are a matter of scientific consensus.
D. There is also a danger to children’s safety given the wearing of costumes that may be flammable if they come in contact with hot cigarette embers.
E. The Safe and Sane Halloween event is held mainly on Main Street between Weatherlow and Roop streets and the first block of Roop, Lassen, Gay, Union and Weatherlow streets on both the north and south sides of Main Street between the hours of 3 and 5 p.m. on Halloween.
