In a reversal, Bonita Springs City Council on Monday extended its temporary ban on medical marijuana dispensaries.
Last Wednesday, the council deadlocked 3-3 on whether continue the yearlong ban that was set to expire Friday. The tie meant the ban would end unless the council held another vote.
Councilor Peter O’Flinn, who missed last week’s vote because he left to attend another meeting, asked City Council to reconsider the ban.
His request led to the convening of the special meeting at 8:30 a.m. Monday. A public notice of the meeting was posted Friday.
Audience members and some members of the City Council said the meeting public notice time was too brief.
“I do have a problem with this being 8:30 a.m. on a Monday and just getting notice of this on Friday,” said Councilor Mike Gibson. “I think this is way too fast.”
