The Normal Town Council members voted to move smokers farther away from area businesses.

Before tonight the designated smoking distance was 15 feet but leaders felt that distance was an infringement on environmental and health regulations.

In a unanimous vote the council decided to move the distance another 10 making it 25 feet.

The rule is set to go into effect as soon as the proper signage is put up around the city. Community members and businesses who fail to comply with the new rule will be subject to a fine.
