On Monday the Fortuna City Council will hear a proposal from two high school students that would ban smoking city-wide.

This past Monday the two students who are not yet of age to vote addressed the Chamber asking for a smoking ban in city parks and in front of business. The formal proposal will be this coming Monday before the City Council. .

The Fortuna City Council will hear a proposal for a city-wide smoking ban on Monday night, presented by two high school students.

Right now, the city of Fortuna does not have any legislation on public smoking.

Which once again brings me to ask the question how can those who do not pay taxes or vote have the power to propose a law.

Fortuna, California is home to 12,000 residents overĀ 4.845 square miles and was incorporated in 1906.
