Council member Reggie McGee read an ordinance about prohibiting the establishment and operation of medical marijuana cultivation, processing and retail dispensaries within the corporate limits of the village. The resolution passed by a 4-1 vote.

Council discussed the need for air conditioning on the top floor of village hall. Hall said the area is used to store important paper work, and the heat and moisture could damage those papers. The air conditioning would help keep it protected.
