EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
In response to a Strategic Plan objective, staff has prepared draft ordinances to establish a City-wide smoking ban in public places and implement a local tobacco retail permit. The City Council discussed the draft ordinances on September 3, 2019 and supported the City-wide smoking ban with the exception of designated areas and directed staff to revise the proposed Local Tobacco Retail Permit Ordinance. The City-wide smoking ban is being presented for second reading and adoption.
After the September 3, 2019 hearing, the City received a letter from the National Association of Tobacco Outlets (NATO), which is included in the public comment letters attached to this administrative report.
