Know A County: Kitsap Public Health Board Public Comment Workshop

Kitsap Public Health Board seeks input on proposed vapor products ordinance.

The Kitsap Public Health Board (KPHB) is seeking public comment on proposed rules
that would prohibit vaping in public places and places of employment,
prohibit access to or possession of vaping products by youth, restrict how
retailers provide sampling, and require retailers to obtain permits to sell
vapor products in Kitsap County. 

The Kitsap Public Health Board will be hosting three public comment workshops throughout the month of March.

Bremerton: Thursday, March 10, 6-7:30 p.m.
Norm Dicks Government Center Chambers

Bremerton, WA 98337

This is your chance to be heard on the proposed vaping regulations for Kitsap County before the ordinance goes to a formal public hearing and then a vote by the Health Board. Be prepared to share your personal story, as well as, why being able to vape in an adult-only vape shop was critical to your success in converting to a smoke-free alternative. Please encourage friends, family and loved ones to come with you and share their stories as well.

Please limit vaping at or on the KPHB and government property before, during and after the workshops. Always remember that we are making friends and educating people.

Updates will be posted on the Kitsap Public Health District Vaping page and distributed via the Kitsap Electronic Notification System (KENS) list.

I think that it should be up to the person that owns the business.
