The new year often brings a number of law changes--and in San Marcos--the big change will be the start of a new no smoking policy.
"The ordinance that goes in to effect will impact the park system and our municipal buildings" said San Marcos Mayor Daniel Guerrero. He told 550 KTSA News another smoking ban in public places is set to take effect in June.
"It will probit smoking in public places--indoor venues, music venues, restaurants, bars and pubs--things of that nature" Guerrero said.
A number of Texas cities--including San Antonio and Houston--have enacted tighter smoking restrictions in recent years.
