At yesterday evenings City of Menominee’s Judicial and Legislative / Personnel and License committee meeting Interim City Manager Brett Botbyl announced his appointments to the marijuana selection committee while siting the previous managers errors when it came to how the selection committee was handled.

“So, what I am proposing is that myself along with City Engineer Tricia Alwin and Fire Chief Mark Peterson be approved by the City Council as the new scoring committee” says Botbyl. Chairman William Plemel says, “As you are aware there are some council members who wanted to have a committee of the whole to talk about the rubric.”

While the committee volleyed back and forth as to whether they would give a recommendation to council on the Marijuana selection committee ultimately, they agreed to allow it to go to the upcoming Monday’s council meeting without a recommendation from them and let the council discuss further.
