Grant County Housing and Redevelopment Authority units going smoke-freePublished 11:21am Friday, March 21, 2014
The 80 Housing and Redevelopment Authority units in Grant County will go smoke-free later this year, according to a report in the Grant County Herald.
The change will be effective July 1. The HRA Board of Directors sent letters to all affected tenants about the policy.
There are HRA buildings in Elbow Lake, Herman, Hoffman, Barrett and Ashby in Grant County. The grounds around the housing units will also be smoke-free.
A survey sent to HRA tenants showed the majority agreed with making the buildings smoke-free. About 10 percent of tenants in the buildings are smokers.
