Creve Coeur anti-smoking plea reaches St. Louis County Council

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch . . . .

Creve Coeur’s request that St. Louis County ban smoking in public places today officially reached the county council.

The resolution is on the agenda for council meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the County Administration Building in Clayton. The council today made public the session’s agenda and its supporting material. The Creve Coeur City Council adopted the anti-smoking resolution on March 23.

The resolution says smoking is a health hazard not only to smokers, but to people around them. It calls for a county ordinance that would ban smoking in public places including restaurants and bars. The measure should “guarantee the rights of patrons and employees to breathe in a smoke-free environment,” the resolution says.

The Creve Coeur council passed a similar resolution on Feb. 28, 2005.
