Dewey Beach Moving Closer Toward Smoking Ban for Beaches

Posted:

DEWEY BEACH, Del. (AP/WBOC)- Dewey Beach officials are another step closer toward banning smoking on the town's beaches and in municipal parks.

The Town Council decided Saturday to draft an amendment to the municipal code that would ban smoking in those locations. The town manager will draft the language, which should be ready for a vote before the May council meeting.

Smoking has been banned on beaches in several other Delaware resort towns, including Bethany Beach, Lewes, Rehoboth Beach and Fenwick Island. Fenwick Island was able to secure a grant from the American Lung Association to promote its ban, and Dewey officials are seeking the same thing.

The ALA says Dewey could be awarded up to $10,000 through an application-based process.
