County Property Smoking Ban For Lancaster County?

An outdoor smoking and chewing ban may go into effect as early as June, for all County and City property in Lancaster County.

The County Board Commissioners say they are pursuing a “tobacco-free campus” policy, with the city of Lincoln and the Public Building Commission.

County Risk Manager Sue Eckley says the board wants the new policy in place by June,  so that it goes into effect at the same time as the new statewide ban on smoking in public places.
