Scottville to discuss rental, marijuana ordinances

August 5, 2018 GMT

SCOTTVILLE — City commissioners in Scottville will continue to investigate the possibility of drafting an ordinance for commercial medical marijuana facilities Monday after receiving comments and thoughts from the city’s zoning, finance and ordinance committees.

Second Ward Commissioner Leon Begue, who has spearheaded the drafting effort, will talk to the city commission Monday about comments he’s received about the issue, according to City Manager Amy Williams.

Williams stressed that the ordinance is still several steps away from any kind of formal vote, and estimated that no action would be taken regarding the medical marijuana ordinance until fall.

“Monday night the commission will review the comments received from each of the committies, and try to get a consensus as to their feelings,” Williams said. “We don’t have that final draft yet, and I don’t forsee any type of a formalized, finalized draft in the next 30 days.”

She added that a decision could potentially be delayed until after the November general election, since the ballot will contain an option to vote on allowing full recreational marijuana use statewide.
