iBerkshires.Com reports the Adams Board of Health finally passed a tobacco permit cap after months of discussion that will go into action Oct. 1.
After multiple amendments and information sessions, the Board of Health approved the new regulation last wee that would set an initial cap of 12 tobacco sales permits in Adams.
Late last year, the Board of Health agreed to implement a new regulation that would limit the amount of tobacco sales permits allowed in town.
Originally the board planned to set the cap at 11 but decided to change this after hearing from the public. Many who called in feared the cap would limit possible new businesses from coming into town.
