Final Vote On Smoking Ban Set

The Casper City Council is expected to take its final vote next week on a measure that will ban smoking in bars, restaurants and other public buildings within city limits. At a work session this week, a majority of the council members present supported keeping the proposed fine structure as it was originally written, after a proposal to lower the fine was put forward.

 

If passed next week, violating the smoking ban would subject someone to a fine of up to $750, and would be considered a misdemeanor. The 3rd and final vote on the proposed smoking ban is set to come at Tuesday night’s City Council Meeting.

Some opponents have said that if the ban is enacted, they hope to put the issue before voters in the fall. A similar ban was put into place in 2000, but rejected by voters later that year.
