LETTER: Niles Board of Commissioners

Published 5:49 pm Thursday, November 22, 2018

I am more than a little shocked and disappointed that the City Board of Commissioners chose to call a surprise vote on the ban of future dispensaries during Monday night’s meeting.  I can tell you that there are many residents both in and around the city of Niles who were looking forward to the revenue that recreational marijuana would have brought to the area at large.  I was also hoping that my public statement to that fact, which was omitted from the public comments, would have been sent a clear message to the council that the people will see this pass in due time. 

It is my hope that with the addition of new council members the resolution to ban new recreational marijuana dispensaries will be quickly overturned.
