MANDAN, N.D. (KFYR) – Mandan City Commissioners approved a first consideration ordinance for cigar lounges Tuesday evening.

In a meeting earlier this summer, commissioners began discussing cigar lounges and what ordinances would look like.

In Tuesday’s meeting, commissioners passed Ordinance 1432, which outlines what a tobacco license for cigar lounges would entail. The ordinance includes an indoor-only lounge which would need consent from tenants in a multi-business building.

License requests will also be sent to the City Commission for final say.

Mayor Tim Helbling said this is just a first ordinance, and things can be changed before the final ordinance is approved.
