Soldotna considers restaurant smoking ban

Posted: Sunday, July 28, 2002

KENAI (AP) -- The Soldotna City Council voted Wednesday to set a public hearing in September on a proposed smoking ban in restaurants.

The proposed ban would apply to all public eating establishments within the city. Bars would be exempt from the ban if they were enclosed.

The ordinance was brought before the council at the request of Councilwoman Sharon Moock.

The council did not debate the smoking issue. Moock said she wanted business owners to have more time to prepare for the proposal.

''I think we need to have plenty of comments from the community,'' Moock said. ''We need not be accused of not giving them enough time.''
