LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) - Smokers in Boulder County’s parks and open spaces could face fines under a set of proposed rules.

The Times-Call reports (https://bit.ly/1LKjUtJ) commissioners meet Tuesday to consider rule changes including the smoking ban and specifically prohibiting visitors from consuming food or drink infused with marijuana.

Smoking fines range from $75 for first-time offenders to $300 for the third offense.

Another proposed rule prohibits people from keeping animals in vehicles when hot or cold temperatures become unhealthy.

County staff and the Parks and Open Space Advisory Committee recommended the changes.

The meeting is Tuesday in the Boulder County Courthouse.
