The village's committee of the whole met in April to discuss the ins and outs of how a medical marijuana dispensary should be regulated, should it come to Plainfield.
"There's no proposal to bring a specific group in," Village Administrator Brian Murphy said at the time. "This is really just in light of the state law and in light of how this relates to our zoning ordinances."
Currently, state law allows for 60 distribution centers for medical marijuana throughout the state — including a maximum of three in Will County and one in Kendall County. The law also allows for one cultivation operation in both Will and Kendall, Murphy said, although it could be years before a dispensary comes to Plainfield.
Police look to buy camerasThe board will also vote on a request from the Plainfield Police Department to spend $93,265 to replace and upgrade fixed surveillance cameras, plus $63,495 to purchase a HYBRID mobile camera trailer from a company called FedTech.
Traffic signal at Route 126 and MeadowAlso on the agenda is an agreement with the Illinois Department of Transportation to install a signal at Route 126 and Meadow Lane.
The village's share of the cost would be $54,650, according to board documents.
In addition to approving a pact with IDOT, the board is being asked to restrict parking along Meadow Lane within the improvement area.
