The Marion Village Council reviewed an ordinance for medical marijuana at its monthly meeting on Monday.

The council made a motion to put in the ordinance restricting it to various locations within the village in commercially zoned areas.

Rick Johnson will be in Osceola County to discuss the new regulations when it comes to medical marijuana.

“It will be in the proposed ordinance,” village clerk Marsha Turner said. “At this point in time, they haven’t approved anything.”

Halloween trick or treat hours were posted 5-8 p.m. on Oct. 31.

The council also approved eyewash stations to be installed in the village well houses.

The council also approved new water rates at a $37.50 flat rate fee on a three-month bill. It’s $3 per 1,000 gallons of water after that. The current rate is $27.50. It will take effect on Jan. 1.

A meeting has been set for 2 p.m on Wednesday, Oct. 25, to meet with the Osceola County Landbank for an update on the old hotel building in Marion.

“It’s really in bad shape and hasn’t been used in years,” Turner said. “The Osceola County Landbank owns it. They’ll give a current status of what they’re doing.”
