E-cigarettes Prohibited on Civic Center Property

Unlawful Acts Generally (5) of the Grand Traverse County Parks and Recreation Commission Rules that govern County parks to prohobit e-cigarettes at the Civic Center.  Section 2.(5) of the Park Rules now states:

[I]t is unlawful for a person or persons (5) To use tobacco or smoke at the Grand Traverse County Civic Center.  As used in this rule, the word “smoke” means any of the following:

(c) exhaling smoke or vapor from burning or heating tobacco, nicotine, or any other related product that is contained in a cigarette, e-cigarette, cigar, pipe or vapors-tanks-mods or related product.
