IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

An eastern Iowa city is one of the first to ban e-cigarettes in all areas where tobacco cigarettes are banned.

Iowa City confirms the vote was unanimous -- 6-0 -- Wednesday night.

The ban means e-cigarettes will not be allowed in offices, city buildings or certain parks.

Due to the fact that e-cigarettes release a vapor and not smoke, they are not covered under Iowa's Smoke-Free Air Act.
