Smokers may see ability to smoke curtailed in Lansing village.

In Lansing village, the trustees' March 17 meeting saw a visit from Ted Schiele of Tobacco Free Tompkins who discussed the possible creation of Tobacco-Free zones in order to protect the village's employees. Tobacco Free Tompkins has three areas of focus: full access to public facilities for those who are adversely affected by tobacco smoke; modeling appropriate behavior for teenagers and children; and supporting the health of the public in general, and public employees in particular. Schiele was quoted in the Ithaca Times acknowledging that change will come slowly: “This country was built on tobacco,” he admitted. “Without it, Jamestown would have died… So, we’ve got a long way to go.”
