OLNEY, Ill.--A reconvened Olney City Council meeting was held two days after the last Monday meeting of the month, which was at 4 p.m. today (Aug. 27). At this meeting, mayor Ray Vaughn let the public know that they were there to discuss an ordinance which would authorize a development agreement with Delta 9 Global or related party for 17.36 acres on Shipley Road in Olney.

Once again several members of the audience spoke to the council on their standpoint of having a medical marijuana facility in Olney. This time there were more people that stood strong on the facility being built and felt that it would be very beneficial. Vaughn allowed several people to speak; with the limited agenda and the input from the public, the meeting was a little over an hour long.

Vaughn wrapped up the public comments and then a few of the council members spoke on how they felt it would be a good opportunity and idea for the facility to be in Olney. The council then voted and unanimously approved the facility.
