The Waterford Township board will review 25 medical marijuana applications at their meeting Monday night.
Supervisor Gary Wall said the township has reviewed applications in the order they have been submitted since Jan. 4. By the end of that month, 23 applications were submitted.
The township can approve up to 10 licenses, including two each for growers, processors, provisioning centers, safety compliance businesses and secure transporters.
Wall said that of the five categories, most applications received were for provisioning centers. It has received no applications in the safety compliance and secure transporter categories.
Most of the applications cite locations on Highland Road or Dixie Highway.
The virtual meeting starts at 6 p.m. and can be viewed at https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/298444717.
Also being discussed tonight is the township’s Citizens Emergency Response Team, which encourages community adults to assist township and public safety personnel where services may be strained due to weather or natural disasters.
In a February letter Brendan Brosnam, the Township’s emergency management coordinator, said assistance with downed wires, traffic control, and search and rescue were among the tasks these volunteers would perform.
The township wants to select participants this year and start training in 2022.
“It’s good to have a plan in place,” Wall said. “You just don’t know.”
