DECATUR, Ga. -- DeKalb County Commissioners have pushed back a vote on an expanded anti-smoking ordinance within the county.
DeKalb's Board of Health has been pushing the tighter ordinance for months.
They claim second-hand smoke averages out to more than $500 in healthcare costs for each county household.
But owners of DeKalb's eight strip clubs have protested that including them in the ban will encourage their customers to go to competitors in other counties.
The extended smoking ban would also include parks, ATM lines and other outdoor locations.
County commissioners had been scheduled to make a decision on Tuesday, but after hearing both sides, delayed their vote until their next regularly scheduled meeting in two weeks.
Some businesses, like restaurants that are already under a county smoking ban, say customers will get used to it.
