May 8, 1987
Under a barrage of pressure from restaurant and hotel owners, the Rancho Mirage City Council voted to amend a proposed no-smoking ordinance to permit some smoking in restaurants. The amended version would permit smoking in no more than a third of a restaurant's seating area. Restaurants also would have to install air filtration systems by Dec. 31. The original proposal would have been the toughest anti-smoking law in the state.

A compromise anti-smoking ordinance adopted by the City Council here failed Friday to placate restaurant owners, but a tobacco company withdrew its threat to move a golf tournament it sponsors to a neighboring resort. Barraged by complaints from restaurateurs and other merchants, the council voted 4 to 1 late Thursday to amend an ordinance that would have banned smoking in offices, public buildings, restaurants and hotels, except in private rooms and bars.

A tough ordinance banning smoking in the work place and most public places has won the City Council's preliminary approval in Rancho Mirage. The proposed law, which still must be voted on a second time April 30, allows smoking only in residences, private offices, private hospital rooms, psychiatric facilities, bars and tobacco stores in the desert resort community. Under the ordinance's terms, employers are not permitted to set aside special areas for their employees who smoke.
