Dewey Beach may ban smoking on beach
By The Associated Press

Officials in Dewey Beach are considering banning smoking on the beach.

Mayor Diane Hanson tells The News Journal many people have requested a smoking ban. If it passes, Dewey would become Delaware's fifth coastal town to restrict smoking.

Fenwick Island enacted a smoking ban earlier this year. Bethany Beach and the state parks also bar smoking on the beach. In Rehoboth Beach and Lewes, smoking is banned in parks and playgrounds.

Dewey town commissioners are scheduled to consider the proposed ban Saturday. Hanson says fines and enforcement for a potential ban have not been discussed.
