   B.   Every hotel or motel regulated by this chapter will have posted at its entrance a sign clearly stating that nonsmoking rooms are available, and every patron shall be asked as to his or her preference.
   C. Notwithstanding this section, the presence or absence of signs shall not be a defense to a charge of Smoking in violation of any provision of this Chapter. (Ord. 2019-06 (part), 2019; Ord. 2010-01 § 1(part), 2010; Ord. 562 § 2(part), 1994).
