The Kemah City Council did not approve a ban on smoking in all public places on Monday night. The council decided to keep its original ban, which prohibits smoking in most public places like restaurants, while also allowing smoking in standalone bars and restaurant bars.

The council did modify the ban to allow smoking within 5 feet of public places instead of the original 20 foot barrier.
