The Summit County Health Department is issuing a 30-day formal notice and comment period during which the public can review the amendments and revisions to the Summit County Code of Health, Title 1, Chapter 9 (Tobacco and Synthetic Nicotine Control) as well as the addition of Section 1-9-8, regarding flavored tobacco products and submit comments to the Health Department in writing by email or mail or in person at the September 9th Board of Health Meeting.

Public notice is hereby given that the Summit County Board of Health (“Board”) in accordance with UCA §26A-1-121, will conduct a public hearing to discuss and possibly take action to amend and clarify existing definitions, add new definitions and add Section 1-9-8, regarding flavored tobacco products. The Summit County Health Department finds that preventing youth access to flavored tobacco product can best be achieved by restricting the sale of said products to tobacco specialty businesses, which are governed by more restrictive regulations.

Proposed changes to the Summit County Code of Health, Title 1, Chapter 9 (Tobacco and Synthetic Nicotine Control), to add Section 1-9-8, (Flavored Tobacco).
