In October, it was lights out for indoor smoking in Ashland. Now, the city says it may be pushing smokers out of the park.

That's because there have been complaints about too many cigarette butts on the ground, and smoke in the air.

City officials are studying whether to ban smoking in Central Park, or if expanding the smoke free zone around nearby King's Daughters Medical Center will take care of the complaints.

So far, the city has formed a committee to search for a solution to the problem.
