Mayor Winnecke says he's already spoken with City Council president John Friend, but it's too soon to say what, if any action city leaders will take following the court ruling that invalidates Evansville's anti-smoking ordinance. The court ordered the reinstatement of the city's previous law, enacted in 2006. There's also a state law that restricts smoking. Winnecke says city lawyers and others are looking at how the laws fit together.
