FDL County Board Bans E-Cigarettes Use In County-Owned Buildings

Fond du Lac County supervisors Tuesday night approved amending a County code to prohibit the use of e-cigarettes inside County-owned facilities. County Supervisor Marty Ryan says whether or not e-cigarettes are as harmful as cigarettes or produce vapor instead of smoke the use of them in smoke-free County facilities sends a mixed message. County Board Chairperson Marty Farrell informed the supervisors that the City-County Building Board had already passed the prohibition of e-cigarettes for the City-County Building. Supervisor Judy Goldsmith echoed Marty Ryan’s comments about possible confusion. The resolution passed with 21 supervisors in favor, 2 against and one abstained.
