Five apply to run marijuana businesses in town

Five businesses applied for the four available slots for medical and retail marijuana establishments. 

During Fort Lupton City Council’s first meeting of the year Jan. 4, City Clerk Mari Pena told the council four of the applications were for retail interests, while the fifth was for medical marijuana. 

“All of the qualifications have been met?” asked Mayor Zo Stieber. 

“Yes,” Pena said. 

The four winning businesses have to come before the city’s planning commission and council. Stieber wanted to keep potential locations quiet for now. 

New shelter coming 

Councilors unanimously approved a bid for a new shelter at City Hall during the Jan. 4 meeting. 

Parks and Recreation Director Monty Schuman said the polygon-style structure would be suitable for summer lunches for city staff, among other uses. The bid from Churchich Recreation won’t be any higher than

$34,000. Schuman said the city has an existing business relationship with the winning bidder. 

“I think it’ll be a nice addition to the courtyard,” Stieber said. 

City Hall closed 

City administrator Chris Cross said City Hall will be closed Monday, Jan. 17, in commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
