So much for individual rights. Guess the smokers will have to go across the street now.
A more restrictive ban on smoking will outlaw smoking within 30 feet of all Milwaukee County buildings, a move aimed at dispersing smokers huddled around building entryways.
County Executive Scott Walker is to announce the new restrictions today.
Walker also will propose a change in county ordinances that would eliminate designated smoking areas in county buildings, including the courthouse and Mitchell International Airport.
The 30-foot no-smoking perimeter will be enacted through an executive order to be signed today by Walker, spokeswoman Fran Rudig said.
