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.

    It was a hot topic on the ballot Tuesday in Kennett where 68 percent of the voters that turned out decided to ban smoking in public places. However, it will be a while until it is put into place.
