As early as this month, the Paris City Council will decide on the future of smoking in bars and restaurants in the small Texas town, a move the mayor has already come out against. It will have a final public hearing on the proposed restrictions on Feb. 10 and then make a decision.

Paris is located in between Dallas and the Louisiana border with a population around 25,000.
