Longview Cab Company Allows Smoking

The city of Longview could soon adopt a policy of being a smoke free city, but at least one businessman is taking steps to give his customers a choice. 61 year old Mike London has owned the London Cab Company of Longview for 5 years and during that time, he has allowed smoking in his office and his cabs.

At a recent open forum on the proposed smoking ban, he was told that, if passed, the ordinance would cover cabs as well. London has since designated cabs for smokers and doesn't think much of the possible ordinance. Longview city council is expected to take up the issue of a zero tolerance smoking ban after the first of the year.
