    Belmont steams ahead toward one of nation's toughest smoking bans

    The Belmont City Council took a big step Tuesday night toward passing what could turn out to be the nation's toughest municipal smoking ordinance, but stopped short of calling for an all-out ban.
    Bolstered by virtually unanimous support from residents and health advocates in the audience, a majority of the five-member council expressed support for prohibiting smoking in parks, indoor and outdoor workplaces, ATM lines and bus stops, and most notably inside apartments and condominiums.

    Mayor Coralin Feierbach drew cheers from the crowd when she said Belmont had a chance to set an example for other cities around the country by passing the most stringent ordinance it could muster.

    "Cities have to sometimes reach for the sky," she said.

    The council took no official action but directed city staff to draft a law on which it can vote at a future meeting. The council hadn't hashed out all the details by press time, but its support was adamant for restricting smoking almost anywhere that it could affect unwilling bystanders.

    That doesn't mean police officers will be tracking down smokers on the streets, however. The council said it wants enforcement of the smoking law to be complaint-driven, much like a noise ordinance.

    In other words, a neighbor of a smoker in an apartment complex could contact authorities if she was bothered by the smoke drifting into her unit, and police or code enforcement officers would respond and either mediate an agreement or issue a citation

    I would suggest that, if you are smoker and an apartment dweller in Belmont, CA, you think about quitting, or think about moving to one of those red states where they let anyone smoke anywhere.

    Or bribe your neighbor not to complain.

    Or get your landlord to only rent to fellow smokers.

    Or run for city council in the next election and get the law overturned.

    Go to another anti war protest, scream how the Bush administration is taking away their rights, rant how the Patriot Act is undermining the country - all while watching the Police ticket someone enjoying a smoke in their own home

    They did something similar in Calabasas a few years ago... Makes the cigarettes taste that much better when I'm driving through and stop to hold my impromptu protests
