The Grundy County Board last night approved a text amendment to prohibit the sale of recreational cannabis within unincorporated parts of the county.

13 board members said yes and Jim Ryan, Ann Gill, Jake Olson as well as Mike Onorato voted no.

Onorato had this to say during the meeting.

Before the vote, Jim Ryan suggested the board put a non-binding referendum on the March 2020 Election ballot.

Board Chairman Chris Balkema further elaborated on that idea.

Ryan and Balkema had this reminder for the public.

The text amendment to prohibit recreational cannabis was recommended by the Grundy Zoning Board of Appeals and approved by the Grundy County Land Use Committee last month.
