North Richland Hills Considers Smoking Ban
NORTH RICHLAND HILLS (KRLD) – Another North Texas city may soon be ready to stomp out smoking.
The North Richland Hills City Council will vote on whether to ban smoking in restaurants, most hotel rooms, and within 25 feet of any entrance to a store, office, healthcare center or other public building.
However, smoking would be still be allowed in bars, private clubs, and on outdoor dining patios, although a special city permit would be required.
A group of high school students is behind the proposal. They say they want to protect residents from second hand smoke.
If the council passes the measure, it would likely go into effect January 1.
