Motion was made and seconded to refer the order DGR Committee to allow for Councilors to have a closer look at the bill and the resolution language. Motion failed for lack of a majority.

Councilor Vacon spoke on the application for 56 Canal St. noting that the applicant Trulieve put together a very full and thorough application for a marijuana cultivation facility at the location. It was noted that the investors were very serious and that they were investing a large amount of money on the property in hopes of having a viable facility that will eventually operate 24/7 and hire hundreds of employees. It was noted that because the City Ordinance does not allow for 24/7 operation any change would need to come through an amendment to the City marijuana ordinance. Rules were suspended to allow a question to Law Dept. Councilor McGee asked Acting City Solicitor Crystal Barnes if, based on the language in condition number 6, if the City ordinance was amended to allow for 24/7 operation the applicant would need to come back for a public hearing process in order to be allowed the expanded hours. Atty. Barnes stated that based on the language the applicant would not need to file a special permit application and that it would just constantly need to make sure that the company was in compliance with City ordinance in regards to hours allowed.

Terence Murphy
Under discussion:
It was noted that the application was for a cannabis testing lab on Appleton St. Councilor Vacon spoke on the order and offered an amendment for the hours stipulating that hours of operation be Monday through Saturday 8am to 6pm. It was noted that the applicant had asked for these hours and that the amendment was just to ensure that the request of the applicant is on the conditions for the Sp. Permit. Councilor Vacon explained that the conditions are aspirational because the applicant would hopefully be expanding their work force and hiring more people. Councilor Murphy noted that currently the work force has two employees that are not from Holyoke so it would seem to run contrary to the employment condition. Councilor Vacon stated that the conditions are meant to be followed but stated that the company is just getting started and they are hoping that as employees are hired they will follow the conditions of the Sp. Permit.
Councilors discussed hours for the special permit with Councilor Lisi stating that she felt that the conditions should stay silent on hours to allow for expansion of hours if the company so wishes.
