FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) -- Davis County health officials were expecting a high turnout at their hearing to discuss a ban on smoking in public places. But only two people showed up to voice their support.

Davis County Health Director Lewis Garrett says he's taking it as a sign of general support of the plan to make the county smoke-free by the Fourth of July.

The public has until Tuesday to submit comments concerning the smoking ordinance to the county health department. The Board of Health will meet on June 12 to finalize the ordinance.

If approved, the ordinance will ban smoking at public playgrounds, golf courses, sports fields, the Lagoon amusement park and other outdoor public areas.
