Smoke-Free Ordinance Complaints

Under the city’s smoke-free ordinance, smoking and vaping (use of electronic smoking devices) is prohibited in many locations across the city, including restaurants, bars, and casinos. To comply with the ordinance, owners of businesses where smoking and vaping are prohibited are required to:

  1. Post “no smoking or vaping” signs in compliance with Health Department regulations,
  2. Remove ashtrays, and
  3. Ask individuals smoking or vaping in violation of the ordinance to stop or leave. 

If you observe a possible violation, please notify the owner or manager of the establishment because they are responsible for compliance.
