Members of the Constantine Village Council recently set dates for two public hearings regarding a youth tobacco and vaping ordinance, and a youth-marijuana ordinance.
The hearings will run simultaneously at 7 p.m. March 2.
The proposed tobacco and vaping ordinance states a youth violator is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not more than $50 for each violation.
Trustees suggest various community service ideas, including washing police cars, volunteering at the library, cleaning the parks and doing yard work at the senior citizen apartments on Canaris Street.
The proposed youth-marijuana ordinance states the first violation is a civil infraction. For anyone under age 18, the maximum fine is $100.
In addition, court officials may order violators to perform community service, forfeit the marijuana and complete eight hours of drug education or counseling.
