Marijuana, rezoning on Farmington Hills council agendas

Farmington Hills council members will continue their review of the city’s marijuana-related ordinances during a 6 p.m. Monday study session.

In November, city attorney Steve Joppich talked about the history of marijuana laws. Officials then asked for a Planning Commission review of the city’s medical marijuana rules.

The 7:30 p.m. regular meeting agenda includes:

  • administration of oath to Mayor Pro-Tem Jackie Boleware
  • proclamations recognizing Maria Peralta, 2020 Youth Soccer Volunteer of the Year; Judge Marla Parker’s 2020 Oakland County Domestic Violence Prevention Award; and Barbara Megeria’s 25 years of exemplary service on the Board of Review
  • review of the appointment process to fill a vacancy created when Samantha Steckloff won the 37th District House of Representatives seat
  • rezoning of neighboring properties on Eight Mile Road west of Farmington Road
  • extension of the Municipal Broadband Task Force
  • the appointment of Brandy Hart as magistrate for the 47th District Court

Regular meetings are live-streamed at, broadcast live on the city’s cable channel (Spectrum – Channel 203; AT&T – Channel 99) and available the following day on the city’s website.
