Hearing on WEDNESDAY, March 5th, 2014 at 7:45 PM
Unlike most anti-e-cigarette ordinances in Massachusetts, this one is NOT being considered by the local Board of Health (who are appointed, not elected). Rather, this is being considered by the Board of Aldermen, elected officials who should be accountable to their constituents. Moreover, if this ordinance is considered by the full Board of Aldermen, there is absolutely no assurance that the public will be allowed to comment at that meeting. Thus, Wednesday's meeting of the Program & Services Committee may be your only option to provide public testimony and feedback on this potentially devastating ordinance.
The matter is currently on the agenda for the Committee's meeting on WEDNESDAY, March 5th, 2014 at 7:45 PM at Newton City Hall (1000 Commonwealth Avenue, Newton Centre, MA 02459), Room 222.
As a sign of respect, we request that you refrain from vaping in the Committee meeting.
