The Youngsville City Council has introduced an ordinance that would ban all tobacco products in the new youth sports complex set to open in the spring.
The Advocate reports the ban would prohibit the use of cigarettes and chewing tobacco on the entire property.
Tim Robichaux (ROH'-BIH-shoh), director of the Youngsville Sports Complex, says there will be no designated smoking area.
Mayor Wilson Viator said he agreed with the council's decision to introduce the ordinance, although he had suggested setting up a designated smoking area.
Viator and Robichaux agreed that it could be tough to enforce the ordinance, but Robichaux said those who violate it will be warned, then asked to leave.
