In the interest of full disclosure, let it be known that the author of this article is married to the Mayor.

Roughly four-dozen citizens (not all of them from Lyons) showed up at Monday night’s Board of Trustees (BOT) meeting to voice their opinions and concerns at the second reading and public hearing for an ordinance on the proposed regulations and zoning for medical marijuana businesses in Lyons. There were, of course, the usual suspects; dispensary owners, employees, mothers against marijuana, teachers, preachers, and the now ubiquitous National Geographic Television crew. New to the mix, were a half dozen patients, who put an interesting, and up to this point mostly unheard, voice into the mix.

They didn’t finish up till just after 11p.m. Phew!
