The Orlando, Fla. suburb of Oviedo has a new smoking ban at city parks and buildings after the city council unanimously passed the proposal at its meeting on Monday night.
While traditional tobacco products are part of the ban, it was electronic cigarettes that was the main catalyst for the new law, according to ClickOrlando.com. Mayor Dominic Persampiere said that he had received numerous complaints from parents about people using the devices in the parks, and called the odors and smells being put off by them unfair to non-smokers and non-vapers.
The ban goes into effect to immediately and violators can be cited for disobeying it. The full text of the ordinance can be found here.
Oviedo had a 2013 population estimate of 36,683 residents. It is located approximately 15 miles northeast of Orlando.
