Unlike many Ocean County communities, the borough is looking to establish a zone for commercial sales of marijuana in the community.
One site that may be utilized is a former Burger King along with an industrial zone in another area of the borough.
Councilman Steven Oglesby said during a recent Borough Council meeting that he was set to attend an online marijuana facility seminar.
“Hopefully that will guide us in any future endeavors,” Oglesby said.
Mayor Harry Robbins said the borough’s land use board would review the ordinance and it “would come back to us for a second reading which will be at our next council meeting which will be open to the public for comment and will be voted on at that time.”
