After hosting a public hearing where no members of the public gave comments, the City approved an ordinance amendment to allow an excess cannabis grower license category for one of the special license types that can be obtained within the City.
The ordinance amendment was approved 6-2 by the board, with Commissioners Kristen McDonald Rivet and Rachelle Hilliker casting the dissenting votes.
