Tehachapi City Council Needs More Time for Hookah Lounge Codes

City councilmembers say they need more time to determine whether to allow hookah lounges in Tehachapi.

The Tehachapi News reports a 30-day moratorium was approved Tuesday to allow the city to figure out whether to ban the lounges, or allow them and add additional regulations to city code.

A businessman wants to put a lounge at the site of an old bank at Green and F streets.
