Vote to ban tobacco in East Ridge delayed
EAST RIDGE, TN. (WRCB) -- We are no closer to finding out if you'll have to put your cigarette out in East Ridge.
Thursday night city leaders tabled the vote to keep smoking and all other tobacco usage off East Ridge city property.
Not everyone on council was there to vote, so it was rescheduled.
The goal of the proposed ban is to promote a healthier lifestyle for employees, to eventually bring down insurance costs, and to create an environment all can enjoy in public spaces.
It will come up again on July 26.
