On June 24, 2019, the Livermore City Council adopted the Tobacco Retailer Licensing Ordinance, Municipal Code Chapter 5.50. The Ordinance prohibits the sale of all flavored tobacco products, including mint or menthol. The Ordinance also prohibits the sale or exchange of electronic smoking/vaping devices and their fluids. This does not include FDA-approved products. A tobacco retailer’s license (TRL) is now required for the sale of any tobacco product. TRL applications will be sent concurrently with notices for renewal of business licenses. Enforcement will begin on January 1, 2020. All retailers must have their Tobacco Retailers Licenses approved by February 29, 2020.
