On August 21, 2017, the City held a community workshop seeking input on how the City should regulate marijuana sales, manufacturing and distribution within City limits. Issues discussed included whether marijuana sales should be allowed within local shopping areas, whether marijuana manufacturing and distribution should be allowed in the City, whether the City could require allowed businesses to obtain a license to operate, and whether the City should tax marijuana businesses. Feedback received at the workshop and thereafter has been incorporated into a staff report to be presented to the City Council at the 5:30 p.m. September 7th meeting.
