Proposed Smoking Ban Hearing Monday

It's still a burning issue for Lincoln residents…will the City pass an ordinance banning smoking in public places?  The ban is proposed by the Lancaster Health Department and the Board of Health. It would eliminate smoking in every place of employment around the Capital City. The proposal has already created quite a stir among Lincoln smokers and bar and restaurant owners. Another public hearing will be held to discuss the proposal Monday. The hearing is scheduled Monday evening at 5:30 in the City Council Chambers.
