Danville wants to snuff out butts in city buildings.
Commissioners approved first reading of an ordinance to ban public smoking in city-owned buildings Monday. If it is given a second reading, the ordinance could take effect in July.
Smoking areas for city employees will be created inside buildings, as is required by Kentucky law, said City Manager Darrell Blenniss.
There will be no smoking in city-owned vehicles, and the ordinance forbids discarding butts on the grounds of city property, including city sidewalks.
