Out of concern for the effect that second hand smoke has on those with respiratory or other health related conditions, the elderly populations in general, children, non-smoking adults, as well as the general fire hazard and maintenance issues, smoking is banned on all Carbondale Housing Authority (CHA) properties.
This includes any outdoor or exterior areas owned by CHA, including sidewalks, parking areas, porches, decks and patios.
This policy applies to anyone on CHA property including tenants, their guests, contract employees, or any individual on our property for any reason.
Tenants who violate this policy are at risk for eviction.
Any tenant who disconnects their smoke alarm will be subjected to a $50 fine. Repeated violations may result in eviction.
