Gilroy might feel like torching its tobacco report card after receiving the lowest grade in the county for the second consecutive year.
In a bizarre sequence of procedures, the city council banned smoking outdoors in public places Wednesday. Kind of.
Talk of a tobacco retailer's license that would levy an annual $150 to $400 fee on approximately 57 liquor, convenience and grocery stores in Gilroy has been snuffed out.
As the city continues to pursue a ban on outdoor smoking in public places, the vast majority of respondents to an online survey say they support such a policy.
