Council passes pot store limits
By Pat Caldwell
At first glance the agenda for the Baker City Council Tuesday boasted all the ingredients of a lengthy session, but councilors tackled their work with alacrity and quickly moved through 11 items.
The Council selected five volunteers — Corrine Vegter, Brian Vegter, Ann Mehaffy, Terri Axness and Derek Hosler — to serve on the newly-formed Public Arts Commission, and assigned Councilor Dennis Dorrah and City Manager Mike Kee as city representatives to the new board.
The Council then approved — on its third and final reading — Ordinance 3333. This ordinances is a mandate to create a moratorium — not a ban — on medical marijuana dispensaries.
