Rules considered for e-cigarette vapor barsSubmitted: 05/12/2014
Story By Associated Press

STEVENS POINT - As e-cigarette vapor bars become more popular, Stevens Point may put new rules in place.

More bars allowing e-cigarettes are opening in Stevens Point.

A city council committee will meet today to come up with a plan on what regulations should be made.

The Stevens Point City Council could decide to amend city zoning ordinances to include a specific definition of vapor bars.

Vapor products are a substitute for smoking.

Flavored nicotine water is vaporized by a device and inhaled.

City Attorney Andrew Logan Beveridge says officials will also decide whether to issue conditional use permits for those bars.
