Kennett City Council approves smoking ban

KENNETT, MO (KFVS) -

Last night, the Kennett City Council passed the smoking ban that was approved by voters just over a week ago..

That means police can begin enforcing the ban.

Under the new ordinance, people can't smoke within 25-feet of outdoor playgrounds, nor any entrances to local businesses.

Private clubs and bars will be exempt from the ban.
