Councilors push for pause on 'pot farms'

McClure said she’s worried that if it gets too close to the holiday, it will become impossible to schedule a meeting, but she’s still hopeful that there’s enough interest on the council to push the bill through.

“I’m afraid if we don’t move now, we’ll lose the opportunity for a study of this,” McClure said. “Everyone wants to study it and figure it out, so I hope we can get the moratorium so we can give those who weren’t attending the meetings a chance to get caught up.”
