A pair of proposals that will limit the use of tobacco products and e-cigarettes are slated to be presented to the Waseca County Commissioners at their meeting today.
The Waseca Department of Public Health has drafted two proposals for the commissioners’ consideration, one of which would ban the use of all tobacco products on grounds which the county owns, with the other banning tobacco use in structures and facilities on county grounds but still allowing smoking in public parks. Both proposals include cigarettes, tobacco products and e-cigarettes, accroding to KEYC-TV.
Either proposal could be advanced to a vote during the meeting.
Waseca County is home to just over 19,000 residents and sits about 75 miles south of Minneapolis.
