To those of you who like to hang around the Mirror Pond Gallery and smoke in the nearby parking lot- you just got lucky.
The Bend City Council was considering making it illegal to smoke in any city parking lot at its regular meeting last night.
But, instead, the council decided to ban smoking in only one parking location—the city’s downtown parking structure.
So—whether you are a punk or not—from here on out the cops can give you a $200 ticket for lighting up on those premises. Take note.
