Geneva County Smoking Ban Goes Into Effect

One area community has now joined the growing ranks of Wiregrass towns banning smoking in public facilities.

This week, the Geneva City Council approved a smoking ban.

A series of fines are in place for those who light up in prohibited locations.

However, exceptions have been made for some restaurants. The owner of such an establishment must place a sign on the front door stating whether smoking is allowed, or not permitted.

The new ordinance will go into effect in mid-July.

Over recent months, both the Andalusia and Opp city councils approved similar smoking bans.
