Grand Traverse County Says OK to Smoke in Parks

Grand Traverse County's Parks and Recreation Commission decided not to ban smoking or alcohol at county parks under newly proposed rules.

That doesn't sit well with county Commissioner Christine Maxbauer, who previously asked the parks commission to adopt rules banning alcohol, smoking and vagrancy. Signs are posted around the Civic Center that prohibit smoking and alcohol consumption, but the county last year discovered it never formally adopted rules that banned either.

Maxbauer asked the county board to ban smoking at all parks, but its members instead referred the question to the parks commission, which decided to kick it back to the county board.
