The Trigg County Recreation Complex Board voted last Tuesday evening expand the area at the Recreation Complex where tobacco is banned.

However, the decision won’t be final and won’t be in effect until the Trigg County Fiscal Court gives final approval of purchase of the signs.

Complex Manager Dickie Harris said he didn’t know how many signs would be needed, where they would be placed or how much they would end up costing. The Complex Board talked about banning tobacco use within 100 feet of the bleachers, playing fields and dugouts.

TCYAA (Trigg County Youth Athletic Association) President Scott Brown estimated that they’d need about 10 signs.

After Janice Curtis spoke to Complex Board members about smoking near the bleachers and in the dugouts, the board unanimously agreed to put up signs. Brown suggested that they say something to the effect of “no tobacco (or no smoking) beyond this point.”
