FITCHBURG — — FITCHBURG -- Additonal review will be given to community host agreements with marijuana businesses looking to open in the city.

“If we find a way to make the process more efficient ... then we will,” said City Solicitor Vincent Pusateri.

For example, the city will move away from including gift requirements in the host agreements. The change follows guidance from the state’s Cannabis Control Commission, the mariijuana businesses the city already has negotiated agreements with, and other municipal lawyers, he said.

At the end of April, the City Council’s Legislative Affairs Committee reviewed three host agreements and unanimously approved them.
