Mayor’s corner: Need marijuana committee members.
By Mayor Steve Miller, City of Ludington.
The great interest shown by the community to the adult use/recreational marijuana dispensary issue prompted me to ask City Council to approve a committee to study the subject and produce a report with their findings.
Ordinance No. 369-19 establishing an Ad Hoc Recreational Marijuana committee was unanimously approved by City Council February 11.
I will chair the committee. Joining me will be three City Councilors, a Planning Commission liaison, and three city residents.
There will be a meeting at city hall, 400 S. Harrison St., on Tuesday, March 5 at 7 p.m. for anyone interested in being considered for one of three citizen member positions.
Those wishing to be considered for a committee seat should come prepared to show proof of age, residency, and voter eligibility. And, willing to make a personal, persuasive statement, to everyone gathered.
The three panelists will be selected from their peers of registered voters, living within the city limits, over the age of 21.
I welcome anyone interested to attend. However, only citizens meeting the selection criteria can be seated on the committee.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. My office hours at City Hall are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Steve Miller, Mayor
City of Ludington
