SCHUYLER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Smokers in Schuyler County will soon need to watch where they light up. The county legislature voted six to one to approve a smoking ban on all county-owned properties. Some of those locations include the County Office Building, the Mill Creek Center and the Human Services Center in Montour Falls. The Schuyler Hospital has already banned smoking on their grounds. County Legislator Philip Barnes says enforcement of the smoking ban will not include ticketing, but officials are hopeful that neighbors will police themselves.YNN News
