The Grayson County Fiscal Court holds discussion during its regular meeting held on Tuesday afternoon.

The Grayson County Fiscal Court on Tuesday voted to adopt an ordinance banning smoking inside all county-owned and operated buildings.

While the majority of county-owned buildings already fall under ordinances set by the cities of Leitchfield, Clarkson, and Caneyville, a number of buildings located outside of any of these cities' limits, such as the Rock Creek voting house, will be affected by the newly adopted ordinance.

Those found to be guilty of violating the ordinance would be fined no more than $50, according to Grayson County Attorney Jeremy Logsdon, who provided the second and final reading of the ordinance during Tuesday's regular fiscal court meeting.

After the reading, the ordinance was adopted on a 4-to-1 vote, with 2nd District Magistrate Darin Whitely, 3rd District Magistrate Tommy Higdon, 5th District Magistrate Brian Ashley, and 6th District Magistrate Neal Saltsman voting in favor of it, and 4th District Magistrate Damon Hornback voting against it.

1st District Magistrate Robby Higdon was not in attendance at Tuesday's meeting.

In other business:

*Grayson County Judge Executive Kevin Henderson was recognized by Leitchfield VFW Post 12175 Commander Tim Hack with a citation of appreciation for his and the fiscal court's support of the newly established VFW post.
