Local taverns, patrons flout smoking law
At Delaney’s Lounge in West Toledo, the bar recently was full of patrons having a good time, including about five of them who were openly smoking — despite Ohio’s law that prohibits lighting up in public places. Delaney’s is just one of about 37 bars that the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department has cited repeatedly for allowing patrons to violate the law. “If you look at all of our facilities in Lucas County, this is a smidgen of what’s out there — it’s just 37 bars and restaurants out of 3,000 in the county,” said Eric Zgodzinski, director of environmental health services at the county agency.
