Carolina Beach may become the first smokeless strand of sand on the state’s coastline.
The town council voted 4-1 at its regular meeting Tuesday night in favor of an ordinance that would prohibit smoking on the beach. On the advice of their attorney, town officials will seek the state legislature’s approval for the measure, because it’s not clear whether the town or the state has jurisdiction over the beach.
That means the rule wouldn’t go into effect until at least next near.
