Smoking is now illegal in McCall's city parks. McCall City Council voted unanimously to make the Valley County city's parks smoke-free, making smoking a misdemeanor.
McCall parks officials are posting signs, which are being provided by the Central District Health Department. The ban impacts Art Roberts Park, Brown Park, Davis Beach, Fairway Park, Harshman Skate Park, Legacy Park and Rotary Park.
While penalties for a misdemeanor include a $1,000 fine and/or six months in jail, violators are expected to be issued citations.
