Prestonsburg talks smoking ban




PRESTONBURG, Ky.

The City of Prestonsburg is considering an ordinance that would ban smoking in all public buildings despite opposition that says the move could hurt the city.

WYMT-TV reports that the Prestonburg City Council agreed this week to draft an ordinance at the behest of a group called “Breathe Easy, Floyd County.”

The proposed ban has drawn opposition from local bars and restaurants, who say it will hurt their businesses.

Prestonsburg’s ordinance would follow other smoking bans across Kentucky, including in Pikeville, Paintsville, and Letcher County.
