Huntingburg Parks Could Soon Be “Smoke-Free” (VIDEO)

Huntingburg (NNDC) – All Huntingburg city parks could be smoke-free come the first of the year….

People wanting to still give their imput on the proposed ordinance can do by calling your local city councilman or attend the council meeting on December 27th at 7:00pm.


That’s Huntingburg Park Board President Mike Fulkerson talking about why he is asking the city council to pass a no smoking ordinance for Huntingburg’s four municipal parks, including City Park which is home to League Stadium, the city pool and splash park and site of the city’s annual Herbstfest.
Fulkerson says this is what most Huntingburg residents want…(FULKERSON ON TAPE)

Smoking is not allowed in the city pool, nor League Stadium, but is right outside their gates and Fulkerson says that alone is keeping more and more people from avoiding the park all together…. (FUKLERSON ON TAPE)

Fulkerson, an ex–smoker himself, understands the feelings of those who do smoke, but says he can’t come up with one good reason to not pass the ordinance.

The City Council is expected to vote on the ordinace December 27th.
