Smoking will be barred citywide in Hopkinsville come January after the city council passed a ban on lighting up. The Kentucky New Era reported that Mayor Dan Kemp broke a 6-6 tie on the council at a meeting Thursday night.
The Hopkinsville City Council is reviving a smoking ordinance proposed earlier this year. Members will consider the measure Thursday to ban smoking from indoor places such as restaurants and bars. Mayor Dan Kemp proposed the new law in April, and it was set to come up for a vote in June.
