Council members vote repeal ‘Smoking Ban Lite’ – Oil City

After listening to public comment, Councilman Steve Cathey commented, “This belongs to the people, the people to vote on it. Quitting smoking has to be a personnel decision that has to be made from within. We as government officials cannot dictate what you are going to do, I will have to vote to repeal this.” Councilman Shawn Johnson was also in accordance with Cathey and told citizens, “This is way out of the scope of government. Government intrusion is not the way to go at it.” Mayor Powell commented, “Three thousand of our citizens signed that petition, I think it sets a bad president if we don’t go to a referendum.”
