A usually routine report on a committee’s minutes had what the mayor called an “intriguing highlight.”
The draft minutes from the Downtown Huntsville BIA Board of Management presented to council on Jan. 23 included a single sentence that resulted in an inquiry for more information from Coun. Nancy Alcock. The line reads “a Cannabis Distribution store will be opening in the new year at 59 Main St. E.”
That prompted a question to Coun. Bob Stone who sits on that board.
“There’s reference to a new cannabis distribution store … opening at 59 Main St.,” said Alcock. “Just a question of who would that be because I wasn’t aware you could do that at this point.”
In response, Stone said he had heard the same thing, but had no additional information to provide.
