City officials pass smoking ban

WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - Officials in a Southern Kentucky city have decided to ban smoking in most public places.

The Williamsburg City Council gave final approval on Monday to an ordinance that bans smoking in areas like restaurants, bars, pool halls and public areas of hotels and apartment buildings.

Williamsburg Mayor Roddy Harrison said he is a former smoker, but the duty of officials is to "protect everybody."

The ordinance gives employers 30 days to inform workers about the smoking ban.
