The Clinton City Council Monday night made official changes to the City's tobacco ordinance to enforce stiffer penalties on youth caught vaping in school. Additionally, the anticipated ordinance change to the brush clean up program was put on hold.
Chief Ben Lowers says Clinton school leaders have been eagerly awaiting the changes to the tobacco ordinance and this will give them harsher penalties for enforcing youth caught vaping in school.
The ordinance will go on the books in ten days after the Council unanimously supported it.
Additionally, last month, the Council put on file changes to the City's brush pick up program. Commissioner Ken Buchanan says they need to look at some language in the proposed changes before moving forward.
