STEVENS POINT, Wis. (AP) – The Stevens Point City Council is looking at regulating electronic cigarette vapor bars.

Stevens Point Journal Media reports a council committee is meeting Monday to come up with a plan as more and more of the businesses are opening in Stevens Point.

The Stevens Point City Council could decide to amend city zoning ordinances to include a specific definition of vapor bars. According to a proposed ordinance change, a business would be considered a vapor bar if 25 percent of its floor space is dedicated to seating.

Vapor products are a substitute for smoking in which 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.
