The city of Lynnwood has adopted new rules banning vaping in parks.
Cigarettes and other tobacco products already were banned in city parks. Vaping can refer to electronic cigarettes and similar devices.
More cities are mulling vaping rules. The countywide health district already bans vaping in public places, including parks, restaurants and businesses.
Also in Lynnwood: The project to repair 212th Street SW is getting closer to completion.
This month’s work involves putting in a new water main. Traffic delays could continue until the work is done. The estimate for completion is late May.
Serve Brier better: The city of Brier has open positions on community advisory boards and commissions. To get involved, contact the mayor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donations needed: The YWCA seeks donations of hygiene supplies in preparation for this year’s Project Homeless Connect.
Needed are full-size containers of body wash, 2-in-1 shampoo with conditioner, body lotion, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, washcloths and shaving razors.
Drop-off donations by June 16 to YWCA Everett Regional Center, 3301 Broadway, or YWCA Pathways for Women, 6027 208th St. SW, in Lynnwood.
