Hancock Approves Marijuana Ordinanace

The City of Hancock’s application to take part in the national flood insurance program, has been approved, in a letter from FEMA.

This was announced last night, during Hancock’s City Council Meeting.

Acting City Manager Mary Babcock gave updates.

The city campground hopes to open on June 15th, provided Governor Whitmer’s “Stay Home Stay Safe” Executive Order is lifted on May 28th.

No date yet on the opening of city parks with playground equipment.

She said this regarding road construction.

Contracts were also awarded for several different FEMA projects.

The Hancock Business and Technology Park is moving along, and will be further discussed during the June 17th meeting.

Look for the Farmer’s Market to open on June 18th.

It will be open Thursdays from 3p-6pm.

Social Distancing guidelines will be in effect.

The Detroit Institute of Arts plan to display art pieces in 7 different areas is still on, but has been pushed back a few weeks.

It was also noted the Spring Clean Up may turn into a Fall Clean Up, due to COVID-19 concerns.

Bio Bags are also going from $5 to $10, as the city is paying $7 per roll.

Ordinance 306, the city’s “Opt In” For the marijuana laws, was approved, negating Ordinance 302, which was the city’s “Opt Out.”

Ordinance 307, which deals with the marijuana ordinance fee, will be voted on, when the final vote takes place.

Scott Dianda, on behalf of Tranquility Farms, spoke of their target demographic.

The meeting ended with a motion approving the parking direction change on Ravine Street from perpendicular to parallel between Franklin Street and Hancock Avenue.
