Warrick County Commissioners look to change smoking rule

Posted: Updated:

Warrick County commissioners voted unanimously Monday in support of a new ordinance that would change a current smoking law. 

The commissioners' approval means the ordinance will move forward for a second reading later this month.

Right now, smokers must be at least eight feet away from county-owned buildings to light up. The new ordinance would change that distance to 30 feet. 

The change would not impact other buildings, like restaurants and bars; only county-owned property, like the Courthouse and Judicial Center.

Commissioners will take up the issue again on June 24.
