CORNING, N.Y. (WETM) – The Corning City Council is expanding the process they have initiated surrounding the marijuana dispensaries and looking to make a vote on whether to schedule local law 4 or local law 3.

According to Corning Mayor Bill Boland, Local law 3 is a rule designed to opt-out of public cannabis use. Local law 3 would be a regulation used to opt-out of having dispensaries in corning.

The vote happens in November. 1, 2021. The vote will not decide on yes or no, but rather whether to schedule a public hearing.

If the Council decides to schedule one or both local laws for public hearings, those hearings will transpire before the December 6 City Council meeting.

Those public hearings would follow the Corning city legislature meeting where voters will decide the local laws if the Corning City Council is scheduled for the public hearing.

Mayor Bill Boland’s vote for on-site cannabis use and marijuana dispensaries will be placed at the city council meeting on December 6, 2021.
