(POCATELLO) – A group of Pocatello residents is asking the city council to tighten its laws about smoking in public parks. A series of letters and e-mails have prompted the city to reevaluate the issue, though they agree that secondhand smoke remains a big problem. Mayor Brian Blad says he’ll listen to any possible solutions to the issue, but remains hesitant about any new legislation.
