Tonight the City Council is debating the smoking ban. I agree with this law to a certain extent. To clarify I believe smoking shouldn't be allowed where children are present. Smoking should be at owners discretion at their business. I would like to see this law modified. This is affecting our economy in the city itself. Taxes haven't changed in the county because most smokers go outside city limits for leisure activities. We have a lot businesses who are hurting some have even closed. Others are threatening to leave city limits. I'm asking all people who are able to attend this debate to go. Council was elected by the people now is the time for people to speak up. Heres hoping for a modification. I hope you can attend.
