An informal Findlay city council meeting Tuesday heard discussion about e-cigarette use. Representatives of the Findlay Health Department lobbied for council to ban the use of the devices indoors. If the city moved forward with the suggestion, Findlay would be the first city in Ohio to ban the indoor use of e-cigarettes.
There’s no consensus on that subject with council. First Ward Councilwoman Holly Frische said Findlay should be the “trendsetter” on the subject. But Councilwoman-At-Large Anne Spence disagreed. Spence said there’s no proof the vapors from e-cigarettes are harmful to others. Third Ward Councilman Ron Monday added that a ban in the city could drive customers to businesses just outside the city limits.
Council will now decide if they will form a subcommittee to consider the Health Department’s suggestions.Read More →
