City amends smoking ordinance to include e-cigarettes

Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014 — The Susanville Municipal Code that regulates smoking within the city limits now includes e-cigarettes.

The Susanville City Council waived the second reading of an ordinance that would amend the code and unanimously adopted it at its Wednesday, Aug. 20 meeting.

According to the staff report, the ordinance is a response to the increasing popularity of electronic cigarettes and hookah bars sweeping the country.

The ordinance expands the definition of smoking to include electronic cigarettes. The ordinance “restrict(s) smoking in certain parks and at public events.”

The use of e-cigarettes will be banned everywhere smoking is prohibited, including restaurants and workplaces.
