West Monroe City Council Passes Smoke-Free Ordinance

All bars and bingo halls in Ouachita Parish will be smoke-free come January 2, 2014.
WEST MONROE -- The West Monroe Board of Aldermen pass the "Smoke Free Air" ordinance 4-to-1 Tuesday. Fred Ragland was the only alderman who voted against the measure. The ordinance says all workplaces, including bars and gambling facilities, must be smoke-free.

Both the Monroe City Council and Ouachita Parish Police Jury have passed similar ordinances recently, which means the indoor smoking ban will be parish-wide.

The new law is set to take effect January 2, 2014.
