Residents took definite sides on the smoking ban issue. The effort to put the smoking ban on the ballot was defeated, but it is likely to resurface through St. Charles County Council action or a citizen initiative petition.

Before the St. Charles County Council voted on the smoke-free ballot issue on Monday, several people addressed the council regarding the proposal. St. Charles County Council members defeated the proposal to put the smoke-free issue on the November 2012 ballot. Following are some excerpts from what residents said. Sharon Lee, manager of Siteman Cancer Center in BJC St. Peters Hospital “Tobacco use has a direct relationship to causing cancer. “I don’t think this is about public rights as much as it is ‘Let the public speak.’ So once again, we would ask you to let the public make this decision. Let them vote in the November 2012 election, and let their vote be heard.” Jerry Haferkamp of St. Charles Haferkamp said the American Legion in St. …

A Monday night work session could reveal how a proposal for a vote on a countywide smoking ban in St. Charles County will fare.

Cronin says the signs would ease the transition into a countywide smoking ban
Call it a sign of times to come. A St. Charles County Councilman said he would bring an ordinance requiring bars and restaurants to post signs near doorways informing patrons whether the establishment allows smoking or not. St. Charles County Councilman Joe Cronin, R-District 1, of St. Paul, said the sign ordinance is not a step toward a smoking ban. “It’s a step toward a discussion. I think it will give people the chance to begin talking about it before a full comprehensive (smoking ban) ordinance is brought up,” Cronin said after the council’s work session Monday night. He said it’s important to begin a discussion because St. Charles County eventually will vote on a smoking ban. During the work session, Cronin told other council …
