E-cigarettes could soon be banned in Dover

The Associated Press

DOVER — Electronic cigarettes could soon be banned citywide in all places where regular cigarettes are already prohibited.

Foster's Daily Democrat reports the Dover City Council has sending a proposed ordinance to a public hearing. It would ban e-cigarettes in all locations where tobacco products are already prohibited.

Tobacco products are currently banned from several places around the city including a park and on school grounds and athletic fields. Police Capt. David Terlemezian says it's a logical extension of existing tobacco ordinances in "family- and child-intensive areas."

Mayor Karen Weston says she doesn't expect significant challenges to the proposal.

The public hearing is set for Feb. 10.
