Special Meeting Set for Medical Marijuana License Renewals

The Fremont County Board of Commissioners has scheduled a special meeting to consider license renewals for three medical marijuana operations in unincorporated Fremont County.   The special meeting is set for Thursday, January 7th, at 9:00 a.m. in the Commissioners’ board room.   As part of the license renewals the Commissioners will review any complaints filed over the past year against the operations and any state and Sheriff’s Department investigative reports.

The Commissioners also recently scheduled a public hearing for their January 12th meeting to consider a service plan for a proposed Tallahassee Fire Protection District.    The volunteer fire department that now serves the Tallahassee area northwest of Cañon City and along the High Park Road towards Teller County is proposing creation of legal entity which would require an election by the voters within the defined boundaries.    State law requires the Board of Commissioners to review and approve a service plan at a public hearing before the issue can be presented to the voters.     The Tallahassee volunteers hope to put a question to the voters in May, 2016.

Although the public hearing was originally set for January 12th, corrections were needed to the legal description of the district’s boundaries which delayed the legal publication of the hearing in the newspaper.  Because of that the Board of Commissioners will have to continue the January 12th scheduled public hearing until their regular meeting on January 26th.
