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 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.
