[HISTORY: Adopted by the Township Committee of the Township of Mansfield 5-8-2013 by Ord. No. 2013-08. Amendments noted where applicable.]

§ 281-1 Smoking prohibitions in municipal buildings and within 30 feet of all entrances to the municipal building.

The New Jersey Legislature has declared that in all governmental buildings the rights of nonsmokers to breathe clean air supersedes the rights of smokers. In accordance with the state law, the Township has adopted a smoke-free policy for all buildings. Township facilities shall be smoke-free, and no employee or visitor will be permitted to smoke anywhere inside Township buildings. Employees and visitors are permitted to smoke only outside of Township buildings and in such locations as not to allow the reentry of smoke into any building entrances. Furthermore, employees and visitors are prohibited from smoking within 30 feet of any entrance to the Township Municipal Building, as that building is regularly frequented by other employees and many members of the general public. Smoking inside vehicles owned by the Township and near equipment that may be sensitive to smoke is also prohibited.

The enforcement authority for this chapter shall be the police officers of the Township of Mansfield.
