(BLACKFOOT) – The Blackfoot City Council is considering a smoking ban at Jensen’s Grove. Mayor Mike Virtue  says that the ordinance would be difficult to enforce if it’s not applied consistently. Council members say their primary concern is promoting public safety and avoiding the health risks associated with second-hand smoke. After a public forum Tuesday night, council member decided to table the issue until next spring when the weather starts to warm up again.
