Peck: Medical marijuana ban on


PECK — The Village of Peck still has a closed sign out when it comes to medical marijuana.

The Peck Village Council agreed to reinstate the medical marijuana moratorium that prohibits medical marijuana dispensaries from being located within the village limits.

The measure is in response to the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act of 2008 passed by Michigan voters allowing for the growth and use of medical marijuana in the state.

Other council business included:

*The council agreed to transfer $12,000 from a reserve account to the festival account to be paid back after the Peck Summer Festival ends on June 4.

*Council members decided to split zoning according to committees.

*The hiring of an additional officer on the rotation for the Peck Police Department was approved.

*The council agreed to contract out the flower upkeep to Deb McLarty for $1,400.

*Council meetings were set for the third Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m.

*The lease on the JD mower was renewed for $1,100.* Spring Cleanup Days were set for May 12-14.

*The purchase of BS&A tax software was approved for $1,890.

*The council agreed to pay Ron Devroy for putting up Christmas banners and village banners.

*Council members approved the filing for a liquor license for the festival weekend.
