Derry to post 'no smoking' signs
Councilors listened to Acting Administrator Larry Budreau present the plan during Wednesday night’s meeting. They had the option of overturning the proposal but took no action in the session. By doing so, they consented to the plan to post the signs, and it will take effect in the spring, Budreau said.
The town is taking the steps after a local mom’s encounter last year with a smoker at a playground.
Bump said she had to tell her children they couldn’t use the swings because of fear they would be exposed to the second-hand smoke.
Dimmock raised the matter with the council and then proposed that the town adopt an ordinance to ban smoking at playgrounds, meaning no smoking within 30 feet of playground equipment.
