Mayor and Council to discuss outdoor dining smoking/vaping ban for Rockville restaurants tonight

A potential ban on smoking and vaping in outdoor dining areas in the City of Rockville will be a topic of discussion at tonight's Mayor & Council meeting, at 7:00 PM at City Hall. Councilmember Julie Palakovich Carr has submitted a sample ban for discussion purposes only.

Montgomery County currently does not have a similar ban on property it doesn't own, which some restaurant and property owners have said would put them at a disadvantage in Rockville, should outdoor smoking be prohibited in the city. City staff recommends holding a public hearing to get input on the topic, and has provided the ban passed by La Plata in 2006 for review by the Mayor & Council.
