Source says: A solitary public hearing later, it's time to vote on a smoking ban.

According to a reliable source, New Albany's proposed smoking ban ordinance will be comprehensive, just like Louisville's, and will be voted on at Monday's meeting.

Make NO mistake about it, if this ban is passed, and The Civil City of New Albany continues to receive even one red cent from tobacco taxes, it will show that is hypocrisy know no bounds. Our elected council will pounce on the media hyped bandwagon seeking kudos from the tobacco coalitions, yet basicly refuse to deal with the health, safety, and welfare dangers from the horrible state of code enforcement.

Pathetic showboating at best, allowing our city's ordinances to be pimped out like a $2 hooker by the lobbyists at best.
