Columbus County considers tobacco ban


COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Tobacco has long been king in Columbus County, but tonight commissioners will consider a tobacco ban. At tonight's meeting, the County Commission will decide whether to prohibit smoking and tobacco use in county buildings.

They may also consider an updated policy for county-owned vehicles. A recently-rescinded policy prohibited smoking in county cars. A new proposal would allow smoking in cars permanently assigned to one person.

The commission meeting starts at 6:30 p.m.
