As we reported last week, the town of Madison, Connecticut held a hearing on a proposal to ban smoking at beaches and parks.
The original proposal called for no designated areas for smokers, and after the selectmen listened to the concerns of residents they have agreed to designate areas for smokers.
The Beach and Recreation Commission will now assign designates smoking areas, areas which have not yet been defined. The selectmen of Madison, CT unanimously approved the ordinance.
The ordinance goes into effect immediately.
