At the October 3, 2018, Regular Meeting of Council, Bylaw 18-08 was presented for first reading.  It was titled the Smoking Bylaw, but that has now been changed to the Smoking and Vaping Bylaw.  The original draft of the bylaw, along with some supporting documents, can be viewed as part of the Agenda package for the October 3rd Council meeting.
