GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Garden City Community College is closer to becoming a tobacco-free campus.

The school's Board of Trustees voted Tuesday to direct the administration to make the campus tobacco free by Jan. 1 of next year.

The trustees suggested that college President Herbert Swender use his discretion to implement the policy.

The Garden City Telegram reports (http://bit.ly/18lkrfB ) that Swender told the trustees a survey found that students and employees were about evenly split on the proposal. Some people at the meeting raised concerns that a proposed policy was too restrictive or questioned how it would be enforced.

Swender says the school would enact a policy that would ensure that it would be enforced with increased consequences for each violation.
