STEVENS POINT, WI (WTAQ) - Stevens Point will consider a new set of regulations for a new type of smoking lounge.  

A Common Council committee will meet Monday night to discuss a plan to regulate vapor bars -- places where electronic cigarettes are smoked. More and more of them are cropping up in Stevens Point.

Officials are considering a possible legal definition, in which vapor bar regulations would apply if at least a quarter of the floor space is dedicated to e-smokers.  

The city attorney says officials could also require conditional use permits for vapor bars.
