The San Ramon City Council is set to meet and discuss a variety of pressing city issues Tuesday, including updating the language used in the city’s smoking ordinance, a report on local senior issues and a special presentation updating residents on 5G technology.
To start the meeting, council members are expected to complete a discussion updating the language used in the city's smoking ordinance -- specifically adding electronic smoking device vapors, marijuana smoke and smoke from any illegal substance to its definition of "smoke."
If approved, the move would essentially place the same prohibitions on these substances that are already in place for cigarettes and other traditional tobacco products.
City staff have previously said that this decision may be followed by an ordinance which would ban the sale of vaping products within city limits, pending additional study from city staff.
Taking some time to address the needs of San Ramon’s elder population, the council will then listen to an annual report from the Senior Citizens Advisory Committee, courtesy the committee’s chairperson Molly Abreu.
Next, city attorney Martin Lysons will give a special presentation updating the council on the status of 5G wireless technology.
To close out the meeting, city staff want residents to know that the council will be canceling its regular meeting scheduled for Dec. 24.
The San Ramon City Council is set to hold its regular meeting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, in the City Hall council chambers, 7000 Bollinger Canyon Road.
