Fun Fun Fun Fest 2015

At a specially called City Council meeting on Oct. 22, the Council approved an exemption to the city's parks smoking ban for Fun Fun Fun Fest.
The festival is held annually at Auditorium Shores park. In compliance with city code 10-6-2, smoking is not permitted in any city parks. As part of code 10-6-3-11A, however, the City Council has the power to offer "temporary designated smoking areas in a park for special events." The Council voted to approve the exemption nine-to-one, with councilwoman Sheri Gallo voting no and councilwoman Ellen Troxclair off the dais.
Despite the majority of council members voting to approve the exemption, many still raised issue about the health concerns for people allowed to smoke at the festival. Councilman Don Zimmerman said he is against smoking in general but does not think the government has authority to make health decisions for individuals. [Daily Texas]
