On Friday, City Council held a special meeting where they approved a temporary ban on cannabis businesses operating within city limits. The ban is meant to give leaders the time to make sure legal cannabis is enacted in the city the way they want it to be.
The Friday conference proceeded with a meeting of the city’s newly-formed cannabis committee, which will meet virtually at 6 p.m. on Wednesday.
“We don’t really know what the city should be doing at this point without recommendations from the committee and also from the administration and council,” said Howard McCoach, an attorney representing the city.
The committee has met at this point, but they still haven’t drawn any conclusions for the council to base a decision,.
“One of the interesting things about this legislation would be that there are six classes of cannabis licenses,” McCoach said. “If the city takes no action before August 22, then all six of those licenses come into play.”
