Smoking ban takes effect in city businesses


The San Marcos City Council passed a strict no-smoking ordinance on public places including restaurants, bars and places of employment, which took  effect June 1.

San Marcos already has a “Clean Air” ordinance in place called “clean air,”  which states that people are allowed to smoke in designated areas, said Mayor Daniel Guerrero. The smoking ban is a strengthened version of the original ordinance, Guerrero said.

Properties that have obtained and posted permits to build outdoor smoking areas by June 1 will have until January 1, 2015 to go smoke-free and will need appropriate “No Smoking” signage, said Matt Brinkley, assistant director of Community Services.
