WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The City Council has banned smoking from all 29 city parks in West Des Moines.

The ordinance unanimously approved Monday includes park bans on all tobacco and nicotine products, including electronic cigarettes. Signs outlining the new ordinance will be posted in parks in the coming days.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/1PoEjQ7 ) that violators can be fined $100. Parks director Gary Scott says police will issue warnings to first offenders, but repeat offenders will be cited.
