Smoking is prohibited throughout the facilities except in designated areas identified by SMOKING PERMITTED signs.
Smoking is prohibited in any indoor enclosed work area occupied by more than one person, unless all employees in such area agree to allow smoking. The rights of a nonsmoker to a smoke-free area shall prevail.

Smoking is also prohibited in conference or meeting rooms and municipal vehicles used by more than one person, unless all occupants agree to allow smoking.
An enclosed smoking room may be designated, upon request, if space is available.
Employee cafeterias, lunchrooms, and lounges will contain nonsmoking areas large enough to meet demand.
Conflicts should be brought to the attention of the appropriate supervisory personnel. Employees may also file a formal complaint with the Franklin County Board of Health.
Employers found smoking outside of designated smoking areas will be considered in violation of this policy and may be subject to penalties.
Copies of these rules will be posted and distributed to all employees and to all prospective employees upon request.
The Code Enforcement Officer for the Village of Malone shall be designated an agent to assist in the enforcement of this policy by notifying employees who are in violation.
The policy may be amended from time to time by resolution of the Village of Malone. All amendments shall be in conformance with New York State law and employees will be notified accordingly.
