Public hearing will be held on smoke free Jensen Grove

September 5, 2012

BLACKFOOT — A proposal to make Jensen Grove a smoke-free recreation area is expected to be a hot topic and the Blackfoot city council moved, in Tuesday night's city council meeting, to hold a public hearing on the proposal in October.
Councilmen Butch Hulse and Christopher Jensen suggested designating smoke-free areas in the park; however, Blackfoot Mayor Mike Virtue said he fears this would simply be too hard to enforce. "It is going to be difficult to draw a line in the sand as to where people can smoke and where they can't and enforcement will be a concern," he said.
