The Salina ordinance that is slated to go into effect in May bans smoking in almost all public buildings.
The old rule banned smoking in restaurants between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.
The new ordinance is leaving owners and managers of the three Bs, bingo halls, bars and bowling alleys, concerned.
The smoking ban issue has also brought more attention to city commission election on Tuesday to elect three commissioners.
Some opponents are also working to get a special election for the issue and have been collecting signatures.
