The new plan went into effect Monday, October 1 and will be revisited in six months.
The Carroll County Times reports:
Commissioners came to a compromise by deciding to increase the distance smokers are required to be from county-owned buildings from 15 feet to 50 feet — giving managers of buildings the option to designate specific areas for smoking away from entrances and exits of buildings.
The 50-foot requirement also applies to county job sites, vehicles and equipment. Carroll County parks will remain non-smoking.
Exemptions are in place for certain event venues and for certain buildings whose no-smoking radius is mandated by the state.
