Measure would ban smoking in Beaufort Co.-owned property

Posted: Updated:

Tobacco use may soon be a thing of the past in Beaufort County.

The Island Packet reports that County Administrator Gary Kubic introduced a proposal that would ban tobacco on all county owned property - including parks, parking lots and areas around buildings.

Kubic said the goal is to promote healthier lifestyles and cut down on conflict between smokers and non-smokers. He hopes to have the policy in place by July 1.
