Smoking ban goes into effect in July

  • Monday, January 14, 2013

Goose Creek City Council passed a smoking ban Tuesday night. The second and final reading of the ordinance was heard and passed at the regularly scheduled city council meeting. The first reading passed at the Dec. 11 meeting and all councilmembers and the mayor voted the same Tuesday night as they did at the first reading. The smoking ban will go into effect July 1, according to a unanimous council vote that followed the more contentious vote on the ban itself, which had no set date. Council voted 4-3 in favor of the ban. Councilmembers Jerry Tekac, Franklin Moore, Mark Phillips and Kimo Esarey voted in favor. Councilmembers Marguerite Brown, John McCants and Mayor Michael Hetizler voted against the ban. For the full story see next week’s edition of The Gazette.
