The Athens Housing Authority Board of Commissioners recently voted to implement a Smoke-Free Policy for all AHA communities beginning July 1, 2018. Residents have been provided information about the Smoke Free Policy on several occasions through meetings and newsletter stories as well as information sent to each resident.
During May, community meetings will be held to discuss the new Smoke-Free Policy and its impact on residents. Information will be provided about where smoking will be prohibited, Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems, enforcement of the policy, timing on signing the lease addendum based on the Smoke-Free Policy, and community resources for those interested in stopping smoking. Residents are encouraged to attend the community meetings and to ask questions about the Smoke-Free Policy.
