MISSOULA — The Missoula City Council will hold a public hearing on a proposal to ban the sale of flavored tobacco on Monday evening.

The proposed ban includes mentholated cigarettes, flavored cigars and smokeless tobacco.

The ordinance would make it a violation to display and sell flavored tobacco at retail shops within the city, along with locations five miles outside city limits.

A violation would be directed to Missoula Municipal Court and net a possible fine up to $500.

The public hearing is set to begin at 6 p.m. and the council is expected to vote on the measure next Monday.

Meeting information can be found on the Missoula City Council website.
