smoking ban

Smoking has been banned in most public places in Lexington for more than a decade, but the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department is asking child care centers to go a step further.

State Rep. Susan Westrom says recent executive actions by Gov. Steve Beshear have emboldened advocates for a statewide smoking ban.

Lexington’s smoking ban could be expanded if the Urban County Council chooses to implement a Fayette County Board of Health recommendation.
