PUBLIC HEARING TONIGHT

There will be a public hearing during tonight's St. Cloud City Council meeting. The commission is recommending a distance of at least 1320 feet from schools and between establishments that sell the products, and/or 350 feet from houses of worship and parks. There are three sections addressing the sale of cannabinoids.

Those businesses that already sell the products, will be grandfathered in if the ordinance is approved. The city council has the right to approve the ordinance as is, make adjustments to the ordinance, or table the ordinance for discussion at a later date.
