Old Town Cape announces support for wastewater initiatives, opposition to smoking ban

Friday, March 4, 2011

Two days after the Cape Girardeau Area Chamber of Commerce announced its support of two April ballot issues to fund a new wastewater treatment plant and its opposition to a proposed smoking ban, Old Town Cape has followed suit.

The downtown business group's board of directors met Thursday and voted to support passage of an extension of a quarter-cent sales tax and a separate $72 million bond issue to pay for a new wastewater treatment plant. The board also voted to oppose a proposed ban on indoor public smoking "over concern for rights of individuals and business owners," according to a news release.
