Huron Plains Man | City approves first reading of cannabis licensing regulation


HURON – In a brief Monday night meeting at City Hall, the only item on the Huron City Commission agenda that received “no” votes was the first reading of the city’s cannabis business licenses and ordinance.

Ordinance No. 2227-5-132 was introduced for first reading by City Attorney Tucker Volesky. The fees for licenses are not included in the regulation. City of Finance Director Paullyn Carey said the licensing fees will be part of a resolution to have them reviewed annually. The commissioners voted 3: 1 for the first reading.

The second reading of the regulation will take place on October 25th.

Deputy City Engineer Dennis Bennett presented a payment request from Menning Excavating, Inc. relating to the sewer construction at Vantage Business Park for $ 549,941.75. Bennett stated that the sewer is now fully installed, but there is still final pieces of work that need to be done by Menning to complete the project.

Police chief Kevin Van Diepen presented the recommendation of the expert committee at the control centers. The committee found that the market for the consoles was zero, so the consoles are considered scrap as surplus.

Commissioners also:
• Dayton Huber resigned from the seasonal position of the Broadland Creek Pro Shop.
• Approved the promotion of Andrea Hofer to Patrol Sergeant.
• Approved benefits entitlement for Isaiah Cutler, Park Maintenance 2, and Cole Long, Police Officer, after completing 1,040 trial hours.

Mayor Gary Harrington also announced that the city state lunch will be held at the Huron Event Center on Thursday, October 21st at 12 noon.
