(Undated) - A smoking ban may get a vote in three northern Kentucky counties before the summer is over.
Boone, Campbell and Kenton
counties may have a vote on
a smoking ban this summer.
The Kentucky Enquirer reports fiscal courts in Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties may all vote in either July or August. However, Judge-executives in all three counties have not named a date for a vote.
The ordinance being pushed by anti-smoking group Northern Kentucky ACTION would restrict smoking in nearly all public places aside from private clubs.
Supporters of the ban think they have the votes in Campbell and Kenton counties, but not Boone County yet.
Boone Judge-Executive Gary Moore and County Commissioner Terri Moore have not said which way they will vote. Commissioner Cathy Flaig has voiced her opposition to a ban saying it should be up to businesses to allow smoking.
