(DENVER, Colo.) Hello and happy Tuesday Denverites!
Welcome back to yet another Tuesday edition of the Denver Daily-Round Up.
The sun is beaming down on the Mile High City this morning, with partly conditions expected around 4:00 p.m. The forecast high for this Tuesday is 61°F with a forecast low of 38°F.
Today, local businesses are worried after the Denver City Council is pressing on with its plan to ban a majority of flavored tobacco products, Denver's warm and dry November is a bad sign for lovers of snow, the Johnson & Wales campus located in Denver is beginning to see transformation under new owners and the Foo Fighters announced a North American summer tour with a stadium stop in Denver.
The Denver City Council has moved forward with its plan to prohibit a large portion of flavored tobacco products, voting 12-1 to publish the flavored tobacco ban with the amendment that would take effect in 2023.
The City Council will make a final vote next Monday and business owners are worried they may be forced out of business. City councilors rejected amendments that would have excluded menthol as a flavor in addition to an option that would have allowed stand-alone tobacco and vape shops from being included in the ban, as per CBS Denver.
As of Tuesday, Denver has gone a total of 223 days since its last measurable snowfall in addition to a dry and warm November.
