City Council votes to ban e-cigs in indoor public places


The City Council voted unanimously Friday to ban the use of electronic cigarettes in indoor public places.

The ban takes effect immediately.

Public places, such as restaurants, stores and places of employment, will face fines if they violate the ordinance. A first violation comes with a $200 ticket and subsequent violations could carry penalties up to $2,000.

Sampling e-cigs in tobacco shops that restrict customers under the age of 18 is allowed, however.
