KETCHUM, Idaho (AP) — Ketchum officials have banned smoking in a long list of areas that include all city-owned facilities, parks, and indoor public places and places of employment, including hotel and motel rooms.

The Idaho Mountain Express reports (http://bit.ly/XRichp) that city councilors passed the ordinance Monday that comes with a yearlong education campaign before enforcement begins.

After that penalties start with a warning and rise to a $52 fine for a third violation.

Employers in the resort area who are found to discriminate against employees making complaints concerning the ordinance face fines of $1,000 to $5,000.
