Hattiesburg bars, restaurants could ring in '07 with "no smoking" signs

Coming the turn of the year Hattiesburg may be a smoke free city. An ordinance banning smoking from all public places and places of employment will be on the agenda during Tuesday's city council meeting and it could be law come January 1st, 2007. 

The ordinance -- which includes banning smoking from all enclosed bars and restaurants -- is expected to be tabled with a public hearing scheduled for November 14th.  Proponents of the ordinance have been working closely with the Hattiesburg Restaurant Association in hopes of receiving their support.
