Mesquite Snuffs Out Smokers

Smoking still allowed in bingo halls, tobacco stores

On Monday, the city of Mesquite city council expanded the city's smoking ban.

Now, smoking will be prohibited in most public places, with the exception being bingo halls and tobacco stores.

A task force had been researching expanding the ban since last December and determined that many people supported tighter regulations.

The more restrictive ordinance was unanimously approved by the all-present city council

The new ban takes effect June 14.
