The Augusta city council will consider a proposal to amend a ‘no-smoking’ ordinance enacted this past January to include bus stops. The ordinance already bans smoking and all other forms of tobacco use at city parks, playgrounds, athletic fields, schools and most other city and school properties.

City councilor Dan Emery proposed the change after receiving an email from the parents of two children affected by an adult smoking, who is apparently a parent of another student who uses the same bus stop. One of the children has asthma and the other has cystic fibrosis. The city council meeting will start tonight at 7 in council chambers at Augusta City Center.
