Smoking sections could become slimmer in DeKalb County

Smoking sections could become slimmer in DeKalb County

DECATUR, Ga. – Are you ready for a smoke-free DeKalb County? If so, you could get your wish. Last month, the DeKalb County Board of Health voted to amend the county’s current Clean Indoor Air Ordinance. If adopted, the suggested revisions would make the county’s businesses, parks and facilities completely smoke-free.

According to the DeKalb County Board of Health, the currently ordinance:

 “Allows smoking at free-standing bars, adult entertainment establishments and outdoor venues, including parks”.

This amendment would ban smoking in those places, playgrounds, entrances and exits to buildings, outdoor entertainment venues and outdoor service lines and would decreases the number of rooms a hotel can designate for smoking from 25 percent to 10 percent.

The amended ordinance has been submitted to the Board of Commissioners for their consideration and adoption.
