The Evart City Council, at a meeting earlier this month, voted in favor of an ordinance to allow marijuana growers, processors, transporters, safety compliance enters and provision centers to function inside the city limits.

Evart’s among the area municipalities that have had to decide whether or not to participate in the Medical Marijuana Facilities Licensing Act. This act, according to reports, creates a comprehensive state licensing system that will control the growing, processing transporting, testing and sale of medical marijuana throughout the state.

The Village of Marion earlier decided to not participate in this.

The motion was approved by the Evart council 4-1.

City manager Zach Szakacs had reported that the previous town hall meeting regarding the medical Marijuana ordinance went well, with good feedback.

The council also approved distributing the Evart Community Master Plan. A motion was approved to accept the bid presented by Gerber Construction with a base bid price of $289,200.54.

The license fee was set by the council at $5,000 per license.
