Pike County To Enforce Smoking Ban

  • {Pikeville, Kentucky}...Five years ago, the Pike County Fiscal Court approved a smoking ban for the Hall of Justice and courthouse. In the new year, officers will be cracking down on smoking inside the buildings. Anyone caught smoking in the buildings will receive a citation and a $50 fine. Pike County Judge Executive Wayne T. Rutherford says officials will do the best they can to enforce the ordinance. Maintenance workers will also conduct routine checks around the buildings looking for signs of smoking.
