No tobacco use on County grounds
Murray County Sole Commissioner Brittany Pittman approved a second reading of an ordinance prohibiting tobacco use on county property.
“It’s for the health and safety of those that enter into the facilities and for those who work in those facilities each and every day,” Pittman said. “You will see the signs out on all the county property. When we were doing our research on this, it shows that smoking and tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable deaths in the U.S...so anything that we can do to try and mitigate those risks we will do.”
