The Westminster Mayor and Common Council voted on Monday, February 24, 2020 to approve a proposed ordinance that will prohibit vaping in places of public accommodation. Ordinance No. 920, which was introduced on January 13, 2020, will ban vaping where the smoking of tobacco products is already prohibited by State law. Ordinance No. 920 will permit vaping in vape shops and other shops where the use is lawful and vaping is the primary intended purpose of the use.
Mayor Joe Dominick stated, "The City took this action to promote public health and to remove uncertainty for business owners about what was permissible in public spaces. Westminster is joining a few counties in what will soon be the rest of the state in taking this action."
Ordinance No. 920 will take effect on July 1, 2020.
