Where there's smoke …

Northborough – The dangers associated with second-hand smoke have caused the Northborough Board of Health to consider tightening smoking restrictions on some town properties. Smoking is currently permitted on the grounds of the Town Hall, the library, the Senior Center and the Police and Fire departments, but at a distance from the buildings. A proposal from the board, as presented by Health Agent Jamie Terry, would eliminate the use of any tobacco on the grounds of those town-owned properties.

A public hearing about the proposal is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 6:30 p.m. in the selectmen's room in the Town Hall.
