Prattville smoking proposal fails

In a 4-3 vote the proposed smoking ordinance in Prattville failed to pass at Tuesday's city council meeting.

Councilman Tom Miller and Council President Dean Argo wanted to ban employees and customers younger than 19 years old from smoking in restaurants.  Some business owners feared they would lose employees if the ordinance passed.

The current ordinance in Prattville says businesses have to make a choice whether to allow smoking or not.
