City Council Passes New Tobacco Ordinance

The Golden Valley City Council passed the second consideration of the new Tobacco Licensing and Regulations ordinance at its Oct 15, 2019 meeting. The new ordinance will be effective Jan 1, 2020.

Before drafting the ordinance, the City solicited public input and feedback through an online survey, email, social media, and the Aug 5, 2019 Tobacco Regulation Forum at Brookview. The City Council reviewed a draft ordinance at its Aug 13 Council/Manager meeting and held first and second considerations at its October meetings, where public comments were taken.
