Monday, Lincoln's City Council listened to public opinion on a couple of issues at the center of debate.

The council is looking at whether to adopt a new ordinance. If so, that means children under the age of 18 will be allowed to go into a smoking establishment. The current ban does not let children go into a business that allows smoking.

The council is also considering requiring businesses that allow smoking to get a permit.

If the new ordinance is passed, it will go into effect sometime in July with enforcement starting Nov. 1.

The council is expected to vote on the changes next week.
