Opp Smoking Ban?

An Opp city councilman says it's time for his hometown to ban smoking in food establishments.

One can still light-up after a meal at more than a third of the eating establishments in Opp, but on Monday night, the city council will consider imposing a smoking ban at all food establishments.

Fines will range from $100 dollars for the first offense, to $500 for repeated violations.

An informal survey conducted by area media in Opp indicated 70-percent of the residents supported a smoking ban.
