The county's health department is pushing to make that an ordinance.

 

Crook County Commissioner Ken Fahlgren says a recent survey of 600 residents gave them insight into how locals feel.

 

"Looked to be 70 percent in favor of the ordinance of not smoking on county properties.  Were most people who spoke up in favor of the policy?  Yes, most of them were.  We do have a group in town that believe we're taking away their liberties -- and we have to listen to that."

 

The county commissioners held a public hearing last week and most in attendance spoke in favor of going smoke-free at county properties.

 

Commissioners will make a final decsion on Apri l 24th.
