Auburn Smoke Shop, located at 67 Franklin St., was opened in April 2021 by owner and operator Mohamed Algamal.


The Committee, which consists of Auburn Police Chief James Slayton, Auburn City Manager Jeff Dygert, and Auburn Fire Chief Mark Fritz, unanimously voted to send a notification to the smoke shop requesting they send a representative to the board’s next meeting on March 16.

The notification states a hearing will be held on March 16 regarding the property’s future, regardless of whether a representative chooses to attend or not.
