O’Fallon smoking ban proposal approved for ballot

O’FALLON, Mo. (AP) — Another Missouri town may be going smoke-free.

The St. Charles County Election Authority said Monday that enough people signed a petition drive in O’Fallon to put a smoking ban proposal on the April 5 ballot.

The O’Fallon City Council could also opt to simply pass the proposal without an election. A public hearing is scheduled for Dec. 22 at City Hall.

The proposal would ban smoking in most enclosed public places. That would include all bars and restaurants in O’Fallon, a fast-growing town of 75,000 residents.
