Posted: Updated:

CREVE COEUR, Mo. (AP) - Many cities and counties have banned smoking indoors, but the St. Louis suburb of Creve Coeur is going a step further.

The Creve Coeur City Council on Monday passed a measure placing limits on where smoking is allowed outdoors. The ordinance bans smoking in outdoor dining areas. It also prohibits smoking in other outdoor seating and service areas open to the public. The ban includes electronic cigarettes.

Councilman Robert Hoffman, a pediatrician, led the effort.

City officials say they've received a mostly favorable response from the public.
