City Needs to Provide Clean Ashtrays

RECEIVED Mon., May 23, 2005

Dear Editor,
   The smoking ban may clean Austin's air, but it could also litter our streets. Thousands of smoking clubgoers standing outside to smoke will generate thousands of cigarette butts on the ground. If the city is going to impose the ban, the least it can do is supply clean ashtrays on our downtown streets.
