New Juneau smoking law in effect

Posted: Thursday, January 03, 2002

JUNEAU (AP) -- A new ordinance banning smoking in and near most public places went into effect in Juneau on New Year's Day.

The ordinance makes it illegal to smoke in most enclosed public spaces and within 10 feet of entryways and ventilation system intakes. The ordinance does not apply to the entryways and ventilation system intakes of state and federal buildings.

Bars, private clubs and a few restaurants also are exempt from the ordinance.

Juneau police will enforce the ban, but spokesman Tom Porter said the department will initially focus on educating the public through warnings.
