Lockport students want to kick the butt out of local parks.
A group of students from North Park Junior High School are asking the Lockport City Common Council to vote yes next Wednesday on making all city parks tobacco-free.
Members of a youth group from Roswell Park called, "Reality Check" gave a presentation to the Council earlier asking them to consider the ban of tobacco products, including cigars, e-cigarettes and chewing tobacco, to be banned from parks.
In addition, there's a petition asking to make parks tobacco-free. So far, it has gathered 242 signatures from parents and students.
Lockport City Council will vote on this issue next week.
