Six Flags asks Jackson, NJ to legislate smoking ban

Posted Tuesday, April 17, 2007 9:18 AM | Contributed by Jeff

At the park's request, the Township Council has introduced an ordinance that would ban smoking at amusement parks. A public hearing on the measure is scheduled for next Tuesday.

The park says the ordinance would give them a legal basis for the ejections.
