Councilman Kenneth Boudreaux will host a town hall meeting Tuesday to allow residents to hear both sides of the debate over prohibiting smoking in bars in Lafayette Parish. Currently Alexandria is the only city in the state to have enacted such a measure, although Lafayette banned smoking in restaurants nearly a decade ago. There is currently an exception in the state smoking-ban law that exempts bars and casinos.

Boudreaux tells KLFY he is not currently proposing a ban on smoking in bars in Lafayette.

The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. in council auditorium at City Hall.
