LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Smoking in parks, cemeteries and gatherings with more than 50 people could soon be banned in Logan.

The City Council will vote on the smoking ban ordinance on Tuesday. If the measure is approved, violators would face a $25 fine.

The ordinance would also ban smoke within 25 feet of a bus stop.

Council members say the ordinance was sparked by a request by Summerfest organizers. They wanted to ban smoking on and near the Logan L-D-S Tabernacle, where the festival will be held.

If the proposal becomes law, smoking would also be prohibited at the Cache County Fair, the Cruise-In, Summerfest and Logan's annual Sidewalk Sale.
