A 3-3 vote on allowing medical marijuana in Marion by the village council at its Monday meeting means the issue was rejected, clerk Marsha Turner said.

The motion was for an ordinance to allow licensing medical marijuana facilities within the village.

Turner said council president Don Gillmore and council members Roger Pritchard and Pam Hopkins voted for it while Scott Salisbury, Steve Henderson and Flora Grundy voted against it.

Turner also said the village voted to spend up to $6,000 for a system that will “map out where the water valves (and other items) are for our water and sewer system.”

Turner said the council voted to move its next meeting, scheduled for Jan. 1 to Jan. 8 because of the New Year Holiday. Council meetings are normally scheduled for the first Monday of each month. Turner said the next regular council meeting will be on Monday, Dec. 4.
