Albany - Valdosta is considering a smoking ordinance similar to Albany's, which has virtually eliminated smoking in most restaurants and other retail businesses. Two Valdosta council members met with Albany leaders on Tuesday to discuss the pros and cons of the Clean Air Ordinance.

Under the ordinance, smoking is only allowed in areas with separate air filtration systems. But, many Albany restaurants and businesses have chosen to ban smoking all together. "We're simply on a fact finding mission. We are visiting various cities to see what ordinance works the best. We might not change our rules, but we want to study the pros and cons," said Sonny Vickers, Valdosta Councilman.
