A short Waterville Village Board meeting last week included a public hearing about the state’s marijuana laws that started Jan. 1.
One resident, Steve Aldrich, spoke during the hearing. Aldrich said he supported the Board opting out of allowing marijuana sales and consumption within the village.
While the Village has opted out for now, the final decision will be made in March by village residents. A ballot vote will determine if one or both of the state’s new allowances on marijuana take place in the village.
In other matters during the 15-minute meeting Village clerk Gayle Barnes said the village received a check for $10,800 from the estate of a woman who received a Community Block Housing grant but passed away before the five-year requirement that the home remain owned and occupied by the person who received the grant.
