City may ban medical marijuana cultivation

Tuesday, May 12, 2015 — In a surprise move, the Susanville City Council directed city staff to create an ordinance that would ban the cultivation of medical marijuana with the city limits.
    According to its agenda, the council was to approve the second reading of an ordinance that would have allowed medical marijuana cultivation with a number of restrictions in response to complaints from residents and public safety concerns from law enforcement.
    Two provisions of that proposed ordinance came under fire from the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California — the ordinance’s registration and inspection requirements.

Ambulance tax measure fails

Wednesday, May 13, 2015 — Efforts to get ambulance services back in the immediate area of Big Valley have failed by a slim margin.
    A special mail-ballot-only election was held May 5 and residents in both Lassen and Modoc County decided not to impose a $64 parcel tax to cover the costs of emergency medical services.
    According to County Clerk/Recorder Julie Bustamante, whose office covered the election for both counties, Measure C failed by just four votes.
    The tax had to pass by two-thirds vote or 414 votes.
