In October, the Fremont City Council voted unanimously to establish a Tobacco Retail License program for Fremont, joining over 150 California municipalities with similar programs. This program was implemented to ensure that retailers comply with tobacco control laws to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the Fremont community and to limit youth access to tobacco products.
As part of the program, a new City ordinance became effective November 8, 2019 and includes the following requirements:
All state-licensed tobacco retailers in Fremont were notified of the new program by mail, and the City also conducted in-person workshops to help answer any questions. In addition, a comprehensive FAQs document has been created to provide additional details about the new program.
