St. Charles County Council Debates Smoking Ban

St. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) –  When the St. Charles County Council meets tonight one of the hot topics on the agenda deals with a smoking ban.

In May the council voted to put the issue on the ballot but  County Executive Steve Ehlmann blocked the move because he said it had too many exemptions, for example the smoking ban exempted Ameristar Casino in St. Charles.

Republican county councilman Joe Cronin wants the public to have the final say by putting two measures on the ballot, one involving the ban and another asking if casinos should allow smoking.

The seven-member council will decide tonight if both measures make it to the voters next November.
