Smoking has been illegal in Town of Zionsville buildings for more than a decade, but soon using other forms of tobacco could be, too.
The Zionsville Town Council introduced an amendment at its March 5 meeting that would ban e-cigarettes, snuff and all other forms of tobacco on all town property and in town vehicles.
Deputy Mayor Ed Mitro said the amendments are modeled after similar updates recently approved in the City of Fishers. He also said Zionsville Mayor Tim Haak is spearheading the initiative.
The penalty for smoking or using tobacco in a prohibited area remains at a maximum of $250 per offense.
The town council is expected to vote on the amendment at its next meeting, scheduled for 7:30 a.m. March 19.
