Sullivan County Commissioners to Re Consider Sullivan Complex Smoking Policy

Sullivan CountyThe Sullivan County Commissioners are re evaluating their no smoking policy for the Sullivan County Complex at the next Commissioner’s meeting on Nov. 18.Commissioner Chair Jeff Barrett said that when the no smoking policy was put in years ago, several residents and several union workers were grandfather in and are allowed to smoke outside. “We had a resident who would not come to our facility because they knew they weren’t permitted to smoke and kinda brought this back up again. It’s easy to say that we don’t allow smoking in our facility for any residents when we are full, and a lot more difficult when we are not.” Chairman Jeff Barrette explained. It has been a few years since the policy was reviewed and Barrette would like to see the policy more decisive where no one smokes or everyone can.
