Commission shuts down Club Skittlez, smoking ordinance

Posted: Updated:
AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

The November meeting for the Augusta-Richmond County Commission discussed the license for Club Skittlez, a potential public ban on smoking, and the designation of Downtown Augusta as a slum.

In a 6-4 vote, commissioners voted to revoke the licenses of Club Skittlez. The bar was in hot water after two violations of the city's dance hall and alcohol ordinances.

Commissioners also voted 6-4 to abandon a proposal that would have outlawed smoking in the city's bars, public spaces, and other areas.

A portion of Downtown Augusta was set as an urban redevelopment area without using the word "slum." The area was also decreased in size.
