Altavista Asks Public to Not Use Tobacco in Parks

ALTAVISTA, Va. (AP) - Altavista is asking the public to not use tobacco products in public parks.
A policy adopted by the Town Council asks the public to refrain from using tobacco products within 50 feet of playgrounds, courts, ball fields, pavilions and bleachers.
The News & Advance reports that the policy is unenforceable because Virginia localities don't have the legal authority to prohibit outdoor tobacco use or enforce such policies.
Mayor Rudy Burgess says all the town can do is ask people to comply with the policy.
