Voters will decide future of smoking ban

SITKA, ALASKA Smoking will still be allowed in bars and private clubs throughout Sitka, at least until October. Sitka's Assembly was set to decide whether to ban smoking in those locations at its regular meeting Tuesday (4-27) night, but opted instead to put the issue on this October's municipal election ballot.
