  • Public Act 095-0017 Smoke Free Illinois Act


    To access the Smoke Free Illinois Act in it's entirety go to www.smoke-free.illinois.gov 


    A summary of the act has been posted on the "Law of the Month" section of this website.


    How will the act be enforced?

    The Colfax Police Department anticipates the cooperation of it's citizen's and business owners during this adjustment period to this new law.  We expect each of our business owners to police their own establishments however, in the case of uncooperative person(s) the police department will respond.  Officers will attempt to obtain compliance in all cases however, if compliance cannot be obtained a complaint may be filed in the form of a report to the McLean County States Attorney's Office where it will be screened and prosecution will be determined.


    An alternative to the aforementioned process is to file a complaint with the Department of Health.  www.smoke-free.illinois.gov  offers an on-line provision for filing complaints with the Department of Health.


    I realize we will never gain a consensus of opinion on the value of this new law however, it is the law!
