MARYVILLE, MO (2010-08-10) It's official: all workplaces and public spaces in the city of Maryville will be smoke free.
That's the 3 to 2 vote of the city council during last night's meeting. A community group has been pushing for the decision since last year to keep employees safe from second hand smoke. One bar owner during last night's meeting made a last-minute attempt to point out employees at bars, for instance, know what they're getting into working in that environment. In the end, the decision came down to letting voters decide to ban workplace smoking or have the elected council people decide. Terri Harr is with the citizens for a smoke-free Nodaway County and says now the education begins. The workplace ban on smoking in Maryville goes into effect on October 1st.
