Lafayette council bans smoking in bars LAFAYETTE – The Lafayette City-Parish Council has voted to ban smoking in bars, clubs and other public places.
The ordinance bans smoking inside, but smokers can light up as long as they’re at least five feet away from the doors.
Media outlets report the ban passed with a 7-2 vote during a Tuesday night council meeting.
The council had considered a similar ban in 2015, but it failed by a 5-4 vote, with opponents questioning how far government should go in regulating private business.
Three of the councilmen who opposed the measure have since been replaced by new members.
