Augusta commissioners to discuss smoking ban again

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

It's been several months since Augusta commissioners have heard arguments for and against a smoking ban.

They'll take up the issue again during a committee meeting at 12:45 p.m. Monday in the commission chamber located on the eighth floor of the Augusta-Richmond County Municipal Building at 530 Greene St.

A local group, BreatheEasy Augusta, has been collaborating with the mayor and Augusta commissioners since last spring on banning smoking in all public places.
