Appleton Reconsidering.

The smoking ban.

The city council is considering a relaxation of the ban. If an establishment in Appleton earns more than half of its income via the sale of adult beverages then measure will allow smoking in that establishment.

A radio report says it was passed on up to the full city council with a recommendation to NOT APPROVE the revision.

Supporters of the ban promised the ban would encourage non-smokers to come to the bars and the promised flood of new patrons is not happening.

I do not smoke (I don't count my occasional cigars as smoking) and smoking or non-smoking does not influence my choice of a bar which is not a choice I often make.
