NEGAUNEE, Mich. (WLUC) - The Negaunee City Council has taken another step forward in finalizing rules for recreational marijuana establishments.
During their meeting on Thursday, they agreed upon a registration fee for marijuana establishments opening in the city. Those interested would have to pay $1,000 for a license, which would be valid for two years.
The funds from the registration fee would go towards related expenses, including increased patrols near an establishment to decrease chance of theft.
The Negaunee city manager believes moving forward with Marijuana establishments will help the city.
“This situation puts the city of Negaunee in a good area, where we think that we’re going to be able to capitalize off of getting more tax dollar revenue with some of the upcoming possible facilities that may occur here in the community,” said Nate Heffron, City Manager of Negaunee.
Other topics on the meeting agenda included discussion about snow removal practices in the city and an upcoming special meeting about commercial development in the area near the Mather B site.
