Smoking on the Beach

What We Have Heard: People in the community and visitors have been told that there is no smoking on the beach.

Facts: The City does not have any regulations preventing smoking on the beach as long as it does not contain any illegal substances and the individual participating in the activity is of legal age to smoke. The City requests that trash produced from these products be disposed of properly and it is considered littering if the trash is thrown on the beach. Littering can have a fine up to $2,000. So if you are smoking please help keep our beaches clean by disposing of any waste properly.
