Clark County residents will have one last chance to comment publicly about a regulation to ban smoking indoors before the local Board of Health considers final approval later this month.
In September, the Clark County Board of Health voted 5-3 to approve the regulation that will govern a public smoking ban in Winchester and Clark County. Changes could be made to the ordinance before it is finalized, based on public comments at Thursday's hearing, which will be at 6 p.m. at George Rogers Clark High School.
"This is an opportunity to give the public a chance to give input on the regulation," said Director of Public Health Scott Lockard. "(It's) a chance to look over that (regulation) and discuss any suggestions they have as to how to make the regulation better for our community."
After Lockard makes opening statements and summarizes the regulation, community members who sign up will have a chance to speak. Full copies of the regulation will be on hand, Lockard said.
