Sutter Creek Moves Toward Pot Ban

Sutter Creek Moves Toward Pot Ban

The Sutter Creek City Council is joining other Amador County governments in moving towards banning commercial recreational pot.  At their meeting last night the Council directed city staff to prepare a new city ordinance that would ban commercial growing and sales of recreational marijuana. Personal growing and use of the drug would be legal under Proposition 64, but the new ordinance would not allow large growing operations or commercial storefront sales. “I wish to ban everything we are allowed to ban” said Mayor Linda Rianda.   The Council also heard a report on the Knight's Foundry.   $100,000 has already been raised to help purchase the Foundry property and the City expects to complete the transaction in mid-April as planned. There have been four work days at the Foundry and volunteers have worked hundreds of hours cleaning and organizing at the historic site.  The Council continued to a future meeting a vote on an agreement with the Jackson Band of Miwuk Indians to build a new sewer line to serve an upcoming expansion of the Pinewood apartments.  Council-member Tim Murphy objected to the way the deal was structured.
