County Wide Smoking Ban

Will you be able to light up in bars, gambling parlors and the Tri-State Racetrack and Gaming Center in the future.

That question may be answered at Thursday's Kanawha County Commission meeting.

One of the commissioners is seeking a resolution supporting the county wide ban according to the Charleston Gazette.

David Hardy favors the ban saying all employees deserve a safe workplace free of second hand smoke.

But Commissioner Kent Carper wants to hear from the Kanawha-Charleston Board of Health before making a decision.

The Health Board is scheduled to receive a final report next month that would expand the smoking ban between July 2008 and July 2009.
