Modified Smoking Ban Approved In Northern Kentucky

Kenton County officials have approved a compromise smoking ban ordinance.

After a vote to institute a comprehensive indoor smoking ban failed, the panel approved a milder version. It exempts bars that prohibit patrons under 18, have no employees under 18 and have enclosed areas for smoking with separate ventilation and entrances.

The smoking ban initially was to have been Northern Kentucky-wide, but Boone County Fiscal Court withdrew in July.

Campbell County passed the ban, but the majority of the incoming fiscal court has said it will overturn the ban. The compromise was originally prepared by Campbell Judge-executive Steve Pendery but never came up for a vote in that county.
