Alamo Heights, Texas Looking at Indoor Smoking Ban

Null

The city of Alamo Heights, Texas will soon be looking at implementing an indoor smoking ban for businesses within its borders, and the city’s mayor would like to start by getting public input on the matter.

Mayor Louis Cooper asked that the agenda item be placed on the city council’s agenda for its Monday, Aug. 25 meeting after telling MySanAntonio.com that he’s been contacted by residents wondering why a ban isn’t already in place.

Cooper appears to want to find a balance between allowing businesses to operate how they wish while protecting the health of residents while in public places, but noted that the city is “behind the curve” when it comes to a smoking ordinance.

Alamo Heights is known as an affluent city with a 2012 population of 7,346 people. It is surrounded by San Antonio, with its city center about five miles north of downtown San Antonio. The city covers an area of just under two square miles.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
