CLEVELAND - Two big proposals for Cleveland are up for discussion in committee hearings Monday.
The first is an ordinance to ban the sale of prepared food containing artificial trans fat. Councilman Joe Cimperman introduced the legislation.
Cleveland City Council members will also consider a proposed smoking ban. Under the plan, it would be ilegal for people to smoke in any city parks, downtown malls or Public Square, and within 150 feet of any city owned place of employment.
This will be the first hearings on both proposals. Representatives from the four major hospitals are expected to testify and address questions.
