Planned Smoking Areas at State Fair Delayed

KSAL StaffSeptember 15, 2016

Plans to restrict smoking to specific areas of the Kansas State Fair burned out for this year’s fair.

After much debate, the fair board voted in May 2015 to establish designated smoking areas across the fairgrounds for this year’s fair. The effort was led by a Reno County youth organization called Communities that Care.

The designated smoking areas were delayed because grants to pay for benches and smoking receptacles weren’t received in time to install them for this year’s fair, which runs through Sunday.

Fair Manager Susan Sankey says she didn’t want to implement the policy until it could be done correctly.

Officials say they plan to have the designated smoking areas ready for the 2017 fair.
