LEWISVILLE (CBSDFW.COM) – The City of Lewisville has banned smoking at restaurants, bars and bowling alleys.
James Kunke, the city’s Community Relations & Tourism Director, said the changes will go into effect on October 1. The City Council voted 3-2 during a special meeting on Monday to enact the ban.
The affected establishments must nix smoking indoors by then. Bowling alleys were originally left out of the ordinance, but Kunke said they were included in the final version.
Hotels cannot allow smoking in more than 10 percent of its rooms. Each must be grouped together and have a different ventilation system from the rest of the hotel.
The ordinance will be read twice more in regular meetings because this was not a “super-majority” vote, Kunke said. But this was the final vote nevertheless.
