City of Tuscaloosa Implementing Tobacco-Free Policy Jan. 1, 2016
July 8, 2015
As part of ensuring the health and well-being of our staff and visitors, all City of Tuscaloosa facilities, grounds and vehicles will become tobacco-free effective Jan. 1, 2016.
Tobacco use, including the use of smokeless tobacco and e-cigarettes, will be prohibited in all facilities, grounds and parking areas owned, rented or leased by the City of Tuscaloosa.
The new policy protects people from the dangers of second-hand smoke, promotes a healthier environment and reduces littering.
The City will provide resources to support its staff as this policy takes effect. Over the next few months, the City of Tuscaloosa will implement an information campaign and begin working with employees who wish to break their addiction to tobacco products.
