NAPLES, Fla. - City council could ban smoking at parks and beaches. But, not everyone likes the idea.
"It's open wind, it's not like its indoors," says resident Chris Parthemore.
"it's your right to smoke," says Rachel Camp. "I mean you're not harming anyone but yourself as long as you're considerate and cautious of other people it shouldn't be a big deal."
But, Mayor Bill Barnett is worried about cigarette butts littering the beaches. We found five just walking to the water. One beach-goer says its just a matter of being considerate.
"I don't want to sit on my beach chair and look at dirty cigarette butts but by the same token I've already moved soda cans," says resident Mike Walters.
In 2008, city councilors said instead of implementing a smoking ban, they should enforce existing litter laws. Parthemore says that should happen now too ..
City council will discuss the ban at a workshop in October.
