While the body seemed receptive, they had a few questions. A big one has to do with St. Anne’s Golf Course. While not officially a part of the Parks Department, staff and assets are utilized in day-to-day operations. Council members question whether banning tobacco on a golf course is a good idea.

The city council is expected to discuss the issue further at its next meeting on March 26th.
