About a half dozen people protested Macon's proposed anti-smoking ordinance Monday outside city hall.
The group, representing several local bars and restaurants, said they're also circulating petitions against the stricter smoking rules.
Macon's city council last Tuesday approved the rules, which would ban smoking in most public buildings, including bars and restaurants.
Mayor Robert Reichert hasn't decided yet whether he'll sign the ordinance, his spokesman Clay Murphy said Monday.
One of the protesters, James Holden, said the ordinance passed by the council is unfair because it only covers the city, not the rest of Bibb County. Holden, a server at Macon's Kaos nightclub, also says local businesses didn't get enough notice to speak out against the smoking rules.
