Businesses like the Bike Stop Cafe in St. Charles will have to post signs stating whether smoking is permitted or prohibited inside by January 2014.

I am not a smoker and have always been against government telling a private business what they canRead More or can't do when it comes to this issue. Further , I think the city council could have suggested putting signs up or went to the chamber of commerce, etc. I believe most businesses would comply because I think this information for a customer is good to know before they make a choice. Sorry, I can only go that far. I can't say I support passing ord like this.
