On Monday evening (June 7th), Alpena City Council members had a first reading of a revised ordinance regarding Medical Marijuana Facilities in the City of Alpena.

As previously reported, back in June, council approved a new ordinance outlining laws and guidelines in which medical marijuana facilities can be operated in the city. City Attorney Bill Pfeifer said, since that time, there were two appeals from applicants whose license applications were denied, one resulting in a lawsuit.

Changes to the ordinance council discussed included taking out the limit on provisioning center licenses. Other changes to the ordinance discussed was exterior signage, making sure the ordinance requirements comply with a US Supreme Court Case, Reed vs. Town of Gilbert, regarding content-neutrality.

Another reading of the ordinance will be brought to council at a future meeting.
