Mayor Joe Krovoza says the idea is to add e-cigarettes to the city's existing anti-smoking in public places ordinance.
"In the absence of federal attention to this cities are left to deal with it and we certainly will here in Davis, we never shy from a big issue and here we go again tonight," says Krovoza.
Fans of e-cigarettes say the devices are less harmful than the real thing.
Meanwhile, Sacramento city officials say they currently have no plans to consider banning e-cigarettes.
