Bonnyville Town Council had another round of discussions about how the community will set it’s pot permitting laws at town council on Tuesday. The talk has the town deciding between a 100 and 150 metre buffer zone for potential cannabis retailers and schools/health care facilities. Mayor Gene Sobolewski noticed the confusion the discussion has caused, saying “It seems like there has been a major downloading of hard decisions onto municipalities.”
Council decided that one of the buffer zones will have to be picked, if only to gauge public opinion on the matter at a later date. The town has received requests for permitting from at least one interested future shop owner.
