Deschutes County is reacting to public concerns about secondhand smoke and cigarette butts downtown Bend.  Deschutes County Health Educator David Visiko says they are asking people to do a short survey by this Friday.  They hope to get 1000 surveys and will then use the results in directing their public policy to possibly establish smoke free zones.  "This is mostly driven by the people.  We're getting anecdotal reports of people affected by secondhand smoke.  Visitors and businesses in our downtown area talk about secondhand smoke and cleaning up cigarette butts from neighboring businesses; so this isn't exactly driven by government, but what people are asking for."  To do the survey or get more info, you can go to Deschutes County's website or their Facebook page.  The results will be final in September 2012 and will be unveiled at a special event.
