Public meetings about possible smoking restrictions in Saint Joseph begin Tuesday. City Councilmember Byron Myers says it’s a health issue, and he looks forward to hearing what citizens have to say about it. The city is drafting an ordinance to impose what are called “moderate” restrictions on smoking in work and public places.
The Council will gather public input at seven meetings this month and next, then hold a work session March 5th to begin deciding what the ordinance will say. The first meeting is at 9 am Tuesday on the third floor at City Hall.
