Olmsted County commissioners are not flinching at plans to publicize and enforce a smoking ban at the Olmsted County Fair in Rochester.
This is the first year in which the entire fairgrounds will be off-limits to smoking. The county’s Smoke-free Workplace ordinance took effect on Oct. 1 last year, after last year’s fair.
The local law prohibits smoking in parks and other recreation areas when they’re being used by children. The fairgrounds is at Graham Park in south Rochester. The fair board leases the park for the fair and will comply with the ordinance and enforce the ban, fair board president Pat Hurley said.
The following chart puts it into perspective.
