Fifty nine percent of respondents said they are in favor of a ban.

When asked who should have the authority in passing the ban, 64% said this is a ballot issue while 30% feel it should be a decision left up to the council.

Nearly 84% of respondents were non-smokers.

Council will discuss the issue at a meeting tomorrow night at 6:30 at the town municipal building.
