The city council of McCall, Idaho could enact a smoking ban at their regular meeting this Thursday, April 10, bringing an end to the days of being able to light up in bars, small businesses, motel rooms, bus stops, nursing home rooms and outdoor eating areas.
The city posted an two-question online survey for its residents to fill out, and the city said that the results showed “overwhelming support” for the ban. There has also been a push to ban or limit smoking at the city’s public golf course, though that did not garner as much support, according to a report on BoiseWeekly.com that cites the town’s newspaper.
Smokefree Idaho has been leading the charge for the city to draft and pass the ordinance, using existing ordinances in Boise and Ketchum as templates.
McCall is home to approximately 3,000 residents and is best known for being a resort town situated along Payette Lake in the Payette National Forest.
