Fake pot banned

City joins county in making ‘spice’ illegal. A public hearing was held in City Hall and no proposal was made for or against the substance until Alderman Janice Antonow made a motion to make the ban effective immediately due to health concerns. The ordinance makes the possession, use or sale of any synthetic marijuana a misdemeanor with a possible $1,000 fine and up to six months in jail. (August 18, 2010)

Supervisors tell MetroCast ‘No’

MetroCast knows where the board of supervisors stand. ‘NO’ was the official word from Lafayette County Board of Supervisors as they considered a tax exemption for MetroCast. In the past year representatives from MetroCast have gone before the board asking for what they claim is a mandatory state law that would exclude them from paying certain taxes. The Lafayette County Board of Supervisors decided that MetroCast’s tax status would hurt both city and county school districts. (July 7, 2010, Page 1)
