Could a smoking ban be coming to Goshen? If a council member gets her way, then yes.
Julia Gautsche proposed a smoking ban in the city at this past week’s city council meeting.
Her proposed ban would ban smoking in bars and would also ban e-cigarettes in addition to tobacco. The ban would be on top of a statewide ban that passed in 2012.
Some council members oppose the ban, saying it interferes with personal choice and a business’s freedom. However, most council members seemed to support the idea of banning smoking in parks.
It’s not known when the ban would start if the measure passes.
