Board of Trustees Quarterly Meeting Notice for 1-24-17

Please click here to view the Charter Township of Commerce Board of Trustees Quarterly Meeting Agenda and Special Joint Meeting with the Planning Commission Notice and Agenda.

Commerce Township’s Position Regarding Changes in the Medical Marihuana Laws

Commerce Township is aware of the three Public Acts signed into law in September 2016 which address medical marihuana, particularly the Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act. The Licensing Act permits the State to issue licenses for businesses associated with medical marihuana, but such licenses cannot be issued until December 2017 and only if the Township specifically passes an ordinance permitting such licenses. The Township currently does not have such an ordinance. 

The Commerce Township Board of Trustees, in consultation with the Township attorneys, will be deciding what, if any, actions it will take in response to the new laws. In the meantime, the Township will continue to follow federal, state and local laws pertaining to marihuana.
