Similar measures are currently in place in Springfield and other surrounding communities. However, Branson’s smoke-free ordinance would differ in some areas.
Planning and Development Director Joel Hornickel:
Residents and business owners are invited to learn more about the proposed ordinance at a “Smoke Free Community Forum” set for Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Branson RecPlex.
City, chamber of commerce and health department officials will be on hand to explain the ordinance and how it would affect local businesses.
The draft text is available on the City of Bransonwebsite, www.BransonMO.Gov. Also included is several pages of Frequently Asked Questions, developed by city staff.
