ROCKFORD (WREX) — The city could welcome its first hookah lounge after passing an ordinance specific to the business.

There are two applicants interested in opening hookah lounges in the city. Nothing was stopping the businesses from coming, but aldermen wanted to create a set of rules if and when they open up.

Those rules include prohibiting alcohol sales inside and requiring they have a stand-alone location.
