Dear IB Friends,
As you may know, the City Council at tomorrow night’s meeting will consider a draft ordinance to allow for “limited” commercial cannabis activities in Imperial Beach. Meanwhile, IN BREAKING NEWS, THIS AFTERNOON THE ACTIVISTS WHO HAVE BEEN SEEKING A BALLOT INITIATIVE THAT WILL ALLOW FOR EXTENSIVE CANNABIS ACTIVITIES IN IB HAVE FILED THEIR PETITION TO PLACE THEIR MEASURE ON THE BALLOT EITHER IN A JUNE SPECIAL ELECTION OR THE NOVEMBER GENERAL ELECTION.
A special election could cost the City approximately $350,000. Such a ballot initiative even on the general ballot in November could cost about $65,000 over and above normal election expenses.
