Wednesday, January 26, 2011
After Less than a month with new county-wide restrictions on smoking under their belt, St. Louis County residents told the St. Louis County Council Tuesday night, that they want smoking ban exemptions tightened up or eliminated. Just weeks after the smoking ban went into effect, County Executive Charlie Dooley had announced that 110 businesses had received smoking ban exemptions, more than the county had anticipated. The city of Creve Coeur passed its own anti-smoking ordinance which also took effect in January, with the goal of offering fewer exemptions. Creve Coeur Police Chief Glen Eidman said Wednesday the department had not received any complaints under the new city law. Businesses eligible for exemptions under the county smoking …

Ordinance allows for some exceptions, but is tougher than county ban approved by voters.
There are new rules in effect for smokers in Creve Coeur, regulations which go beyond the standards approved by 65 percent of St. Louis County voters in 2009 which also became law on Sunday. Among some of the areas, the county ban includes possession of "lighted or heated cigarettes, cigars, pipes or other tobacco products" in public building elevators and restrooms, libraries, shopping malls, and "retail establishments". There are exceptions. Retail establishments where sixty percent of the volume of the business is the sale of tobacco related products and where the food is not prepared on site are exempt. So are casino gaming areas, private residences, clubs, and some nursing homes and other care facilities. Creve Coeur City Councilwoman…
