Smoking, vaping and the use of tobacco products will soon be coming to an end in St. Johnsbury, Vt., as on Monday the town’s select board approved an ordinance proposing the ban.
The areas include parks, municipal buildings and all town owned property “where people congregate and assemble for all purposes including, recreation and leisure,” according to the ordinance. It does not include sidewalks or town streets, but it does include a 25-foot buffer zone around all other affected areas.
Violators will be subject to fines between $50 and $200 if they are found to be in violation of the new law.
St. Johnsbury is home to approximately 7,200 residents.
