Leaders vote on hosting workshop for possible smoking ban

Not all city leaders are comfortable with a proposal to ban smoking at bars and private businesses in Richmond County.

On Tuesday, Leaders voted to hold a workshop on the proposed smoking ban with business owners and the BreathEasy Coalition - the organization who proposed the ban.

The organization says the workshop will be beneficial to both sides to learn what would be the best way to move forward.

"I think the workshop is a great idea. It will give a chance for everyone to hear the data and to see what all the issues are and the hash them out," says Danielle Wong-Moores.

The workshop will take place within the next couple of weeks.
