The city of Rome’s Public Safety Committee has a special called meeting on Monday, Sept. 10, at 2:30 p.m in the Sam King Room to discuss the “no smoking ordinance.” The meetings are open to the public.
Media release: The City of Rome is reviewing Rome’s smoke-free ordinance and seeks public input.
Representatives from Breatheasy Rome recently presented a proposed update to Rome’s smoking ordinance at the City Commission caucus meeting held on Monday, Aug.13. Because of the recent proposal, the city would like to gain insight into public awareness of the current City of Rome smoking ordinance and garner public interest on a more restrictive smoking ordinance.
The public is invited to share input by responding to the online survey. To respond to the survey in-person, visit the Office of Downtown Development at 305 Broad St. The community also is encouraged to attend a public hearing at the Public Safety meeting to be held Tuesday, Sept. 18, at 2 p.m. in the Sam King Room at City Hall.
The public can view the current Downtown Rome Smoking Ordinance as well as the Breatheasy Rome’s proposed changes here.
