The Lincoln City Council plans to talk about making changes to the city's smoking ban later Monday.
The proposal would delay enforcement of the ban until Nov. 1.
It also would spell out an exemption application process for bars and restaurants that receive less than 60-percent of their income from food sales.
Businesses also would be given the chance to correct violations of the smoke-free act before being issued a citation.
Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights says smoking bans in restaurants and bars have been approved in more than 100 cities and towns across the nation.
