Genoa council to talk marijuana, demolition, finances

GENOA – City Council members are expected to discuss marijuana regulation, demolition of a house at 131 S. Sycamore St., and other matters at their meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 333 E. First St.

The city in August sought bids for demolition of the Sycamore Street house, and the agenda asks council members to consider awarding the contract for asbestos removal and building demolition to Northern Illinois Service Removal for up to $29,355.

Council members are expected to discuss local regulations on the sale of marijuana. The Illinois Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act allows municipalities to decide whether and how to regulate cannabis-related businesses, including retail and growing operations.

Communities that do not decide to ban or allow cannabis dispensaries and other businesses by Jan. 1 will automatically be presumed to allow them.

Also on the agenda is an ordinance regarding food-truck licensing, purchase of a new dump truck for $137,723, and a presentation of the audit of the city’s 2018-19 budget.
