Smokers get break in Irmo

Oct 18, 2010 8:16:00 PM - thestate.com

A proposed crackdown on workplace smoking in Irmo would allow lighting up to continue at some sites.

The plan would exempt any bar, restaurant, office and store where smoking inside currently is allowed.

It’s the weakest restriction in the Midlands, but some Town Council members say it’s the best that can be gotten.

Toleration of “smoking islands” is a concession necessary to start eliminating it at most local workplaces, Councilman Barry A. Walker Sr. said.
