More public discussion needed here on marijuana-dispensary issue

The meeting was at 6:30 p.m., half an hour earlier than regular council meetings are typically held. If you were to show up at the routine time, you would have missed the entire meeting. The only notice of the 6:30 meeting was two weeks earlier in the Daily News.
