Should Crook County buildings and grounds be totally tobacco free? That's a question the Commissioner are asking of the residents.

 

Commissioner Seth Crawford doesn't think that a new ordinance is needed, and disagrees with the wording of the survey.  "I feel that there are some misleading questions on there. Because the first question is, in general- 'When you're out and about, do you try to avoid second hand smoke?'  And I can't believe anybody would write no on that. So to me, you're already putting somebody's thought process in a certain direction."

 

Crawford says there are already 20-foot no-smoking restrictions at the county buildings and he doesn't think the county has the right to tell people how to live their lives or make decisions about their health.

 

The smoking survey is on the Crook County website; we have a link to it here
