PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Utah County health officials want to ban smoking in public parks and other outdoor places where large crowds gather.
Under the county board of health's proposal, those who violate the law would be fined $25 for the first offense and $100 for each subsequent offense.
Some, though, worry the county rule would place an undue burden on city police departments who are left to enforce it.
Jen Tischler, a county health educator who's been pushing the proposal, says there may still be some disagreement over the details, but the overall idea is widely supported in the county.
