Smoking Ordinance Provides Debate

thumb_42decb42181e7d2BRANSON, Mo. – The Branson Board of Aldermen meeting served as a platform for many residents to speak their minds about a proposed smoking ordinance inside city limits.

The City of Branson has drafted a smoking ordinance proposal which would prohibit indoor smoking in businesses with limited smoking outside businesses.

Steve Wood owns the Outback Steak & Oyster Bar, the Outback Roadhouse Motel Suites, and the Outback Pub. He says he’s not a smoker, but he’s against the ordinance:

General Manager for the Outback Pub, Matthew Stoll, says he’s concerned a smoking ordinance will keep veterans from coming to town every year:
