The Excelsior Springs City Council recently approved a new smoking ordinance that provides smoke-free air for all enclosed places of business and public areas in the city. Excelsior Springs is the 23rd jurisdiction in Missouri to adopt a comprehensive smoke-free ordinance.
Business owners and patrons will have a 30-day grace period to adjust to the new law.
