City Council Update, June 20, 2022

Council approved licenses for two marijuana retailers, approved several upcoming events, and more.

Two marijuana retailers were granted licenses: Lume (1949 12 Mile Road) on a 4-2 vote, and Quality Roots (3916 11 Mile Road) with a 6-0 vote. Both expect to be operating in approximately four to six months.

Since terms to the city's boards and commissions expire in June, several appointments and re-appointments were made. 

The tennis courts at the recently renamed Friends Park on Harvard will be resurfaced. 

Council approved purchases for Dream Cruise merchandise, Irish Fest on September 9-10, and the DDA's "Trick or Treat Stroll" and "Monster Mash Block Party" on October 29. 

Council also approved a contract with a Human Resources firm to audit and update current employee procedures.

The first reading of an ordinance to control vegetative invasive species passed. While the city does not have a large problem with invasives now, the goal is to start control measures before things get out of hand. 

The city passed several small financial matters and made routine budget amendments that are typical at the end of the city's fiscal year.
