Montgomery City Council Bans Smoking

Soon, there will be no more smoking in many public places in Montgomery, after the Montgomery City Council approved an anti-smoking ordinance.

It passed with a 6-3 vote.

The law, which goes into effect May 1, bans smoking in restaurants, bars, bowling alleys and other public places.

However, smokers can light up in restaurants between the hours of 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. and smoking will be allowed in private halls and tobacco specialty shops.
