An industrial hemp field is coming to the city of Marseilles.

Marseilles Mayor Jim Hollenbeck said the city council took action on the item at their meeting on Wednesday.

He said the field could be use to grow other items.

Hollenbeck said there was opposition to the project.

The initial investment from Rivers Edge Developers LLC will be around $150,000 to the community and seasonal jobs could be created from project.
