the public place list are required to post a sign in conspicuous City staff will draft the specifications for the which the ordinance says must clearly No smoking in English and Tf this is a sign that would be applied to all businesses well probably establish the standard what size the letters have to the and then let them actually blend it in with their City Manager Mike Shands The reaction At the first reading of the doctors testified before city council that secondhand smoke has caused deaths and the medical community has been out in force to support the By the second members of the tourism and entertainment industries came out to argue against the Weve heard some surprisingly a lot more people have been for Akers El Nopalito Manager Paula Valadez said she welcomed the safer air that a

and smoke a cigarette When drafting the ordinance Akers looked to other cities who have similar such as Fort Worth and in effect Since the New Braunfels ordi nance first aired in other cities have now tapped city officials for a copy of this towns proposed Akers not including vacant land or impervious cover such as parking lots and accessory buildings such as storage The proposed fee schedule would require single and mul tifamily residential to pay per month and all others pay on a square footage basis that ranges from per month for to per month for squarefeet and Some of the problems Shands identified with the proposed current fee sched ule were The charges do not take into account the true impacts of surface water runoff by not calculating land grades and slopes into the The plan does not rely on the amount of impervious cover instead it relied on square By that for a single story building would pay the same amount as a five sto ry the multi level building took up less space on the
