Worcester seeks to toughen tobacco ordinance
WORCESTER — The city administration is recommending amendments to the city's tobacco control ordinance to make it harder for tobacco companies to market their products to children and to lessen the impact of secondhand smoke in city-owned buildings.

City Manager Edward M. Augustus Jr. said the amendments will advance the Community Health Improvement Plan, which has a goal of making Worcester the healthiest city in New England.

He emphasized that the city is not looking to burden local businesses or infringe on anyone's personal freedom. Instead, the manager said, the recommendations call for "common sense improvements" to the city's tobacco control ordinance to bring Worcester up to the standards set by many other communities in the state.
