Martin County Courthouse Goes Smoke-Free

The Martin County Courthouse is now smoke-free after the second vote on a no smoking ordinance passed with a 4-0 vote Wednesday afternoon. The first vote on the oridnance was held two weeks ago and also passed with flying colors. The purpose of this ordinance is to protect the health, safety, and welfare of employees and members of the public by providing a smoke-free environment. As soon as the paperwork is complete the courthouse and the annex will be smoke-free. Executive Judge Kelly Callaham hopes to have the paperwork complete by the end of the week.

Starting this weekend, you will no longer be able to smoke on the Knox County hospital's campus. This also includes smokeless tobacco. All smoke shacks on campus will be torn down and removed.
