Hiawatha approves indoor vaping ban
The Hiawatha City Commission approved an indoor vaping ban.
The use of electronic cigarettes is now prohibited in any enclosed public places or places of employment within the city. E-cigarrettes are not allowed in bars, restaurants, retail stores, or any other indoor public places in Hiawatha.
People would be fined at least $50 for their first violation, $100 for the second, and $200 for any violation after that.
Both the police and fire departments will enforce it.
Private homes and e-cigarette shops are exempt from the rule.
