Clean Indoor Air Ordinance

Secondhand smoke is a health hazard to everyone. The Lexington Fayette County Urban County Council approved a Clean Indoor Air ordinance on July 1, 2003. This ordinance provides a smoke free environment in most public buildings including but not limited to restaurants, bars, gas stations, banks, hotel lobbies and hallways, convenience stores, laundromats, bingo parlors, pool halls, and bowling alleys. With a decisive vote, the Kentucky Supreme Court upheld the smokefree ordinance for Fayette County. The ordinance took effect in April 2004.

  • For information on the specific content of the ordinance, contact the Lexington Fayette Urban County Government Law Department at (859) 258-3500.
  • To discuss enforcement issues, contact the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department’s Division of Environmental Health at (859) 231-9791.
