Prestonsburg mayor returns veto over newly expanded smoking ban

Mayor Jerry Fannin has returned a veto over a recently approved expansion of an already intact smoking ban inside the Prestonsburg city limits. The veto came on Thursday, as many in the community had expressed concerns on both sides of the argument. The expansion would have extended the no-smoking ordinance to include city sidewalks, streets, recreation areas and Stonecrest golfcourse.The council is expected to reconsider the policy scope of including streets and sidewalks. Some portions of the ban may return, including no-smoking within 50 feet of a building that contains children.,
