Pere Marquette Charter Township passes ban on marijuana sales

February 28, 2019

PERE MARQUETTE TWP. — The Pere Marquette Charter Township Board of Trustees on Tuesday passed an ordinance to prohibit any recreational marijuana establishments within the boundaries of the township, including grow operations, processing facilities and dispensaries, as well as the sale and consumption of marijuana in public places.

The prohibition ordinance will become effective 30 days after a notice of adoption is published in the Ludington Daily News, according to Township Clerk Rachelle Enbody.

No township residents besides the board members attended the public meeting Tuesday evening at Pere Marquette Charter Township Hall for the second and final reading of the proposed ordinance. The board had heard the first reading during its Feb. 12 meeting.

“I have not received any comments or questions regarding the first reading up to this point. It’s been pretty quiet,” Township Supervisor Paul Keson told the board.

The board then unanimously approved the ordinance without any changes or amendments.
