Medical marijuana ordinance evolves

Public hearing set for Feb. 1 By KEN PALMER

WILLIAMSTON — Residents can weigh in on proposed rules regulating medical marijuana businesses on Feb. 1. The Planning Commission has set a public hearing for that date on a draft zoning amendment that would allow dispensaries to be located in three industrially zoned areas of the city. Those businesses would have to be at least 1,000 feet from a public or private school and no closer than 500 feet to a church, licensed child care facility, residential district or public library, park or playground. Qualified patients would be able to grow marijuana for their own use anywhere in the city, as long it is in a secured building.

Long time in the making

A touch of Paris This miniature, icy version of the Eiffel Tower is one of several sculptures created at the Ice and Fire event in downtown Williamston the weekend of Jan. 7-8. Weather permitting, the sculptures still should be standing this weekend.

The draft ordinance has been in the works for months. On Jan. 10, the City Council reviewed recommendations from the Planning Commission and took the first step toward extending a six-month moratorium on medical marijuana businesses. That would give the city

enough time to adopt the new zoning rules. The moratorium is set to expire Feb. 23 but would be extended by 90 days if the council approves a second reading. The planning board endorsed a draft amendment on Jan. 4 that would have allowed medical marijuana dispensaries to be located within either the I-1 or I-2 zoning districts. But council members who attended the Jan. 10 meeting said those businesses should be restricted to the I-2 district only. Three areas of the city are zoned I-2 — the northern part of the Industrial Park, the southern edge of the city along I-96 and the northwest part of the city along West Grand River Avenue. The version endorsed by the Planning Commission called for dispensaries to be located at least 500 feet away from each other. But the council wanted to increase that distance to 1,000 feet. “The idea is to provide a reasonable amount of diversity to the I-2 zone,” City Manager Tim Allard said. “Extending the distance from one dispensary to another would accomplish that.” The current version of the draft says only one primary caregiver could grow marijuana and serve patients from a single location. The council’s changes

“The idea is to provide a reasonable amount of diversity to the I-2 zone.” – City Manager Tim Allard have been incorporated into the draft ordinance available for public review at City Hall, Allard said. The proposed amendment says dispensaries can be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and that patients may not consume marijuana at a dispensary. Caregiver operations will need federal and state health safety certifications, along with the usual local business permits. Caregivers also would have to submit a security plan and a floor plan specifying the number of plants. The security plan would be kept confidential by the city. Barring any major problems or delays, the council could be ready to approve a first reading of the new ordinance by its Feb. 28 meeting, with final approval on March 14. Under that timeline, the ordinance would take effect on April 1.

WILLIAMSTON — City officials are reminding homeowners to keep their sidewalks clear of snow and ice. The police department has received calls from residents complaining that “a large number” of sidewalks aren’t being cleared to the cement, as city ordinance requires, Sgt. Jeff Hull said. “It appears that residents have attempted to clean their sidewalks, but because of people walking on them, along with the melting and freezing, it becomes hard to

remove all the snow and ice from the sidewalk,” Hull said. Uncleared sidewalks are unsafe for people to use and cause them to walk in the street — a dangerous situation, Hull said. City ordinance says that all snow and ice must be removed from sidewalks within 24 hours of a snowfall if the accumulation is less than four inches. Property owners have 48 hours to clear snow and ice if more than four inches has accumulated. If a property owner doesn’t comply, the city can clean the sidewalk and assess the cost to the owner. But that’s

a last resort, officials said. “We’re just trying to remind people of their responsibility and asking them to take it upon themselves to comply,” City Manager Tim Allard said. “We don’t want to be in the ice- and snow-removal business, short of clearing roads and streets.” Sidewalk snow removal also has been an issue in the downtown area. The Downtown Development Authority has set aside money to pay for clearing sidewalks. But if city crews can’t get to them right away, business owners are still responsible for removing ice and snow, city officials said.

Homeowners: Keep your sidewalks clear


Williamston police investigating threats By KEN PALMER

WILLIAMSTON — Prosecutors were reviewing a city woman’s claim that her ex-boyfriend threatened to kill her. The woman, 31, said she was frightened by a Jan. 14 telephone conversation in which the man threatened to kill her or “put a gun barrel in her mouth,” police reports said. The 31-year-old suspect, who lives in Belleville, told an officer that he had a heated conversation with the woman but denied threatening her, the reports said Police said they would send the case to the Ingham

County Prosecutor’s Office for review.

trouble would occur.

Police respond to fight

Man caught stealing food

An officer was called to a nightclub on Jan. 15 for a fight in the parking lot and found the two combatants sitting at the bar, their differences apparently settled. The incident occurred about 1:30 a.m. Jan. 15 at Club Rumorz on West Grand River Avenue, police reports said. The suspects, who were sitting about 20 feet away from each other, told the officer they had a physical altercation but had resolved their differences and wouldn’t cause any problems. No arrests were made, but the officer remained in the bar until closing time to make sure that no more

A Williamston man was caught stealing avocados, cheese and several packets of seasoning from the D&W Market on West Grand River Ave., on Jan. 16. A store security worker said she saw the suspect, 46, conceal a spice packet in his clothing and followed him around the store while he tried to conceal other items. The man later surrendered two avocados, a packet of taco seasoning, a block of cheese and two packets of guacamole seasoning, police reports said. He was released pending charges.

WILLIAMSTON — Senior Dylan Schultz scored 18 points to lead Williamston to a 60-40 basketball win over nonleague Jackson Lumen Christi Jan. 18. “I’m really pleased with our defense tonight. Our guys are buying into what we need to do defensively,” Williamston coach Rodney Palmer said. “You go into halftime with a 19-point lead because of a defensive effort you’re happy as a coach, there’s just nothing to say.” Williamston’s fast-paced offense broke a 5-5 tie in the first quarter with a 9-0 run. Schultz scored seven points in the run, twice driving for layups and hitting a three. “He (Palmer) challenged me before the game, and I went out there and relaxed and just did my thing,” Schultz said. “We have very good team chemistry and that helps us on the court. We like the fast-paced tempo and that showed tonight. We were getting fast breaks and it really worked well tonight.” Williamston started the second quarter with a 9-0 run stated by a three pointer and a pair of free throws by Justin Cain. Tyler Watters tipped in a shot by Dylan Monette and Cain scored with an assist from Schultz. The Titans ended the run with a pair of baskets, setting up Williamston for another big run, this time out-

scoring the Titans 12-2. Schultz nailed a long two-pointer and followed with a pair of free throws. Kory McKay sank a three to put the Hornets up 32-20. Monette ended the run with a layup that was set up by an over-the-shoulder pass from Schultz to give the Hornets a 39-20 halftime lead. Williamston went up by 20 points midway through the third quarter when Schultz hit a three. On the Titans’ ensuing possession, Schultz stole the ball at half court and drove to the hoop for an uncontested layup. Cain set up another quick score for the Hornets when he tapped the ball away from a Titan guard to Schultz. Schultz flipped the ball to Watters for an uncontested score. With a big lead, Palmer was able to rest his starters throughout most of the third and fourth quarters. “We showed our depth on the bench tonight. We lost
