Ozark Smoking Ordinance

The Ozark City Council voted Tuesday night to adopt a smoking ordinance. Now, Ozark restaurant owners have to decide if they want to go totally smoking or non smoking.

Most restaurant owners and smokers are upset, but non smokers are pleased with the vote.

Business owners have 30 days to decide on smoking or non-smoking in their establishment and then 90 days to change their mind.

The restaurant will have to display signs on their doors as to their decision.

The ordinance was put into place by the council who is trying to make the city healthier for citizens.

The smoking ordinance also involves regulating smoking at places of employment and prohibits smoking in public places in the city of Ozark.
