Petersburg’s Borough Assembly Monday, June 6 will be resuming their discussion on possible ballot questions on marijuana sales in the community. The assembly last month heard from community members about whether to allow pot businesses to operate in the borough and whether the public should have a chance to vote on opting out of legal pot sales here. The mayor and assembly are hoping to hear more input on the issue as they weigh whether to put an opt-out question on the October 2016 borough ballot.
The assembly will also consider the first reading of changes to Petersburg’s smoke free air act of 2010. The changes could allow a pot business to set up a smoking room for onsite consumption. Another ordinance in second reading would regulate retail marijuana businesses like alcohol businesses in the borough.
In other business, the assembly will vote on a grant agreement with the state Department of Natural Resources for an extension of the Hungry Point Trail. The assembly also will vote on starting all its meeting this summer at noon, instead of one at noon and one at 6 p.m. each month.
There will also be a discussion on accepting three remote docks from the state. Those docks are at Papke’s Landing, Kupreanof and Entrance Island in Hobart Bay.
The meeting starts at noon in the conference room at the Petersburg Indian Association building on Twelfth Street. KFSK will broadcast the meeting live.
