On Monday, January 21 at 6 p.m. Madawaska Valley Township will hold a Special Council meeting to discuss and decide whether to opt in or out of allowing private retail cannabis shops in the municipality. CAO/Clerk Sue Klatt has now confirmed to The Current that the meeting will include “a question period for public input” and then Council will reach its decision.
Many nearby municipalities have already completed this exercise. To date, those who have decided in favour of cannabis retailers include:
- Bonnechere Valley
- Hastings Highlands
- South Algonquin
Brudenell, Lyndoch and Raglan decided to opt out earlier this month.
Other undecided municipalities include North Algona Wilberforce who will hold a public meeting on the topic on January 18 at 3 p.m.
