HILLSBORO, Ore. – City councilors voted Tuesday night to ban electronic cigarettes from public parks.
The ban will start immediately.
Each officer can decide to issue a warning or a ticket. You could be fined up to $500 though.
But for now the parks department is really focused on education so everyone is aware of the new law.
Two weeks ago, the council voted to ban e-cigarettes but the city charter requires a second vote.
Forest Grove passed a similar ban last month.
