Chairman Roger Perry opened the meeting with a discussion of Clean Air Smoking Regulations. Board Administrator John Cooper reported the results of a survey taken of all the establishments in the county that serve food. There are 211 establishments (excluding schools) that are involved. One hundred ten (22) of these are al- ready non-smoking by owner des- ignation. Thirty-five (35) others provide a non-smoking section. Smoking is currently permitted in 26 others. In addition, the other 40 establishments are either a tavern, racetrack or bowling alley which are literally omitted from smoking regulations. This survey indicates that nearly 85% of all food service establishments, that would be affected by a Clean In- door Air Regulation, currently have smoking policies that regu- late smoking/non-smoking. Randy DeHaven provided an update to the board on the Radon Testing Program. A computer has been dedicated to the Radon Pro- gram to serve as a data base and the program moderating function.
