Enforcement of Maui parks smoking ban delayed

WAILUKU >> Enforcement of a new smoking ban at Maui County parks, beaches and recreational facilities has been delayed.

Officials say full implementation will require more time because signs warning the public about the new ban must still be produced.

The Maui News says that frequently asked questions about the ban also must be developed for the county website.

County spokesman Rod Antone says that when the Maui County Council approved the ban, it did not include funds for signs.

The ban became law in late April.
