Sturgis sets fees for medical marijuana businesses


STURGIS – The Sturgis City Commission has set the fee for applications for medical marijuana based businesses.

On Wednesday, Sturgis City Manager Mike Hughes shared with the Commission that when they were presenting and approving the ordinances to allow for medical marijuana based businesses to operate in the City, they forgot to approve the application fee.

Hughes says the State of Michigan says the maximum fee that can be charged for an application is $5,000, which is what he recommended.

The Commission unanimously approved the recommendation.

The fee is non refundable and will help defray administrative and enforcement costs associated with the operation of a medical marijuana facility in a community.

The City will not be accepting any applications for medical marijuana based businesses until November 1.
