RECOMMENDED ACTION:

Read Ordinance No. 2005-19 for the first time by title only.

 

Councilmember Haughey moved to read Ordinance No. 2005-19 for the first time by title only, seconded by Councilmember Silva.

 

Speaking against Ordinance No. 2005-19 were:

 

Lee Fairbanks, M.D., 1866 E. Vinedo Lane, Tempe, Arizona 85284

 

Bernice Carver, P.O. Box 2763, Flagstaff, Arizona 86003

 

Donald Morris, 36713 N. 17th, Desert Hills, Arizona 85086

 

Janet McGuire, 2700 Woodlands Village Blvd., #300, Flagstaff, Arizona 86001

 

The following arguments were offered in opposition to the amendment:

 

·    

The Smokefree Air Ordinance would be weakened by the deletion of service lines.

 

·    

Service lines are included in the restrictions in other municipalities’ smokefree ordinances.

 

·    

This ordinance would impact all service lines, not just those outside of bars.

 

·    

Standing in line with smokers could be enough to trigger an asthma attack in some individuals.

 

The Council considered issues such as:

 

·    

People who are talking to someone in the service line would still have the right to smoke, while people in the service line would be required to refrain from smoking.

 

·    

The problems associated with bar owners being responsible to monitor service lines on public sidewalks outside of their establishments.
