Dorchester County decides to hold off on smoking ban ... for now

DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) – A ban on smoking in Dorchester County has been put on hold.

Council members were planning to hear a first reading of a smoking ban Tuesday night, but decided to wait until February.

Councilman Larry Hargett said the council had a lot of unanswered questions about the ban and wanted to read over it before discussing the proposal.

The City of Summerville is expected to take up a possible smoking ban at its meeting next week.
