Council: Police will not ignore state ban on smoking
Published 12/21/2010, The Daily Republic
Mitchell police officers will not be asked to ignore the new state law banning smoking in many public places.
The Mitchell City Council came to that conclusion after a discussion at the start of Monday night’s council meeting at City Hall.
Doug Aslesen, owner/operator of Thirsty’s, asked the council to attempt to persuade Davison County State’s Attorney Pat Smith to be “lenient” on enforcing the new smoking law.
