Employees found smoking outside of designated smoking areas will be considered in violation of this policy and may be subject to penalties.
Any offense committed against this chapter is hereby declared to be a violation, punishable by a maximum fine of two hundred fifty dollars ($250.) or by imprisonment for not more than fifteen (15) days, or both.
