Law | Rock Hill, SC Park Smoking Ban Fails

In what seems like a constant bombardment of doom and gloom cigars news, there is some good news to report from Rock Hill, South Carolina.

After a debate on how to regular smoking in the city’s 21 parks and recreational centers the City Council deadlocked at 3-3 to pass an ordinance.

The proposal to ban smoking in city parks was originally proposed by the Parks and Recreation Commission last month. After the vote the commission expressed disappointment over the deadlock.

Despite the vote, the issue is not dead as Parks and Recreation Commission member Bev Carol says that she will propose the city council discuss it again, thus bringing the issue back on the table.

Rock Hill, South Carolina is home to 69,000 residents over 43.16 square miles and was founded in 1852.
