Flemingsburg Considers Public Smoking Ban

Jul 12, 2011

More than 20 cities and counties in Kentucky have passed bans on smoking in public places and one more may soon be added to that list.  Mayor Marty Voiers and city council are considering a municipal order prohibiting the use of any form of tobacco products "throughout the entire workplace on all city properties with no exceptions, including city owned vehicles." A notice on the city's website reads, "this policy applies to all employees, consultants, contractors, customers and visitors," and lets citizens know that there will be signs posted at entrances of buildings as well as within the premises.
