CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Casper residents will decide Nov. 17 whether smoking should be allowed in the city’s bars.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/lzIbME ) the Natrona County clerk made the announcement Wednesday after city council members decided unanimously last week to allow voters to decide the fate of the ban.

On Sept. 15, council members took the first of three votes to remove the smoking ban outright. They changed their minds by the next week.

Council members alluded to the possibility that if they decided the issue on their own, a citizens committee could again attempt to force an election, which would continue to leave bar owners in limbo.

During the past three years, cigarettes have been alternately banned, permitted and banned again as council members passed and then tinkered with the smoking ordinance.
