Grayson moving forward with smoke-free ordinance; motion unanimously passes City Council


GRAYSON, Kentucky — Members of the Grayson City Council are moving forward with the possibility of creating a smoke-free workplace environment in the city.

The Independent of Ashland ( ) reports that the city council unanimously passed a motion Tuesday to create an ordinance for Grayson to have a smoke-free work environment. The council plans to discuss the ordinance in more detail next month.

The vote came after Roger Cline from the Smoke Free Kentucky Coalition addressed the council to answer questions about the proposed ordinance.

Cline says many businesses in the city already don't allow smoking inside their facilities and that the ban wouldn't affect many other businesses.

Cline says the council must decide on its own how far away people would have to be from a building in order to smoke.
