OLNEY, Ill.--At last night's Olney city council meeting (Monday, August 25, 2014) the council had on the agenda to come out of executive session and vote on a development agreement with a company for 18 acres of land.

A council member has told Disclosure what that was: it's an agreement with a company that will be applying for and wanting to build a medical marijuana facility in Olney next to the Walmart DC. The vote was basically to allow a plant to come to town (if the state approved the application).

However, the council decided that it would not be a good idea if they voted on the agreement, with it being a "hot button" issue and that it was 9:30 p.m. and everyone had already left. The council wanted the process to be as open as possible so no one can say they voted on it without citizens knowing.

So instead of voting on it, they suspended the meeting and will restart it at 4 p.m. on Wednesday (tomorrow, August 27, 2014). This allows them to time to let the public know that they will be voting on an agreement to allow a company to build a medical marijuana plant in Olney on Wednesday at 4pm.

So here's your notice. And while you're at it, be sure you hit the coverage of the "hot button" topic that arose last month, as covered in the current issue on stands now (August-September 2014). You'll want to read it, as it's the MOST THOROUGH coverage of this subject as it applies to the City of Olney and its citizens...and then you can follow along on the developments fully informed. You can read the article at this link, or pick up a copy of the issue on stands in Olney at MotoMart and Marilyn's Liquor Cabinet. DON'T MISS IT...This is a big deal for Olney...!
