Do People in Troy Really Want a Public Smoking Ban?
The Troy City Council is proposing a new ordinance that would ban smoking in all public places and in businesses within the city. That includes bars and lounges, and it's already drawing a lot of attention from people who live here in Troy.
According to Witherington, the ban would extend 20 feet from all public buildings and businesses. That means employees on a "smoke break" from work would have to be at least 20 feet away from the building at all times.
