A committee of residents, business owners and elected officials has been selected to discuss the budding marijuana business industry in Monroe Charter Township.
At its Nov. 17 board meeting, the township announced the formation of its Marihuana Citizens Committee.
The group will discuss the township’s marijuana ordinance, which has been the subject of scrutiny and discourse in recent weeks as hearings were held to address businesses’ applications to set up shop in the township.
The committee was selected by Supervisor Alan Barron, who sought to include a mix of those in support of such businesses, those opposed and those seeking to establish such businesses in the township.
“(This) is a diverse group of people who have expressed an interest in participating on the Citizens Committee to study the marijuana ordinance,” he said.
The appointed citizens to the board include: Julie Everly, Vicky Loveland, Tom Allen, Tim Lake, April Ruttenberg, Katybeth Davis, Chelsey Robinson, Eric Redmond, Jon McCarty and Marvin Yono.
