FARMINGTON – After receiving feedback from a public hearing two weeks ago, Code Enforcement Officer Steve Kaiser presented selectmen with a revised marijuana ordinance. It will go before residents at the March 25 town meeting.Kaiser directed board members to several minor adjustments in the wording of the new ordinance, the biggest change being language that prohibits marijuana-related businesses in the historic district of downtown. That district includes the majority of Front Street, Broadway from High Street down and Main Street from Anson Street to Academy Street. All business associated with marijuana, whether it be medical or adult recreational, will be prohibited from the historic district, aside from several stores which will be grandfathered in.“This is what we did to clean up after all the comments,” Kaiser said of the changes.The owner of LoveGrown Agricultural Research LLC and LoveGrown Caregiver Services, Education & Consulting, Erica Haywood, expressed concern to the board, pointing out that her consulting office located at 186 Main Street would most likely be negatively impacted by the proposed ordinance.“If the tens of thousands of fees don’t force me out, the newly required safe and 24 hour surveillance equipment will force me out. This ordinance is stomping all over my little tiny business,” Haywood said.If the ordinance passes, the permitting fee for a marijuana business would be $1,250. Permitting fees for other marijuana-related businesses such as cultivation, testing and processing facilities, could be up to $15,000 depending on number of plants being grown.The board had few comments on the newly revised ordinate. It will go to the town for approval on March 25.In other business, Executive Vice President of Redzone Wireless LLC Michael Forcillo presented an overview of the company’s services as well as their plans to expand within the Farmington area.Forcillo said that the wireless broadband network company currently brings services to 25 customers in Farmington, as well as 47 customers in Wilton and 61 in New Sharon. There were nearly 300 requests for more information, he said. Redzone eliminates the need for fiber connection, according to Forcillo, but operates on a wireless system with local towers connecting to homes that have a small box attached to them. They are getting close to providing internet for 50 percent of homes in the state, he said.The Farmington Police Department was given approval by selectmen to accept $2,260 from Central Maine Community College and an additional $2,500 from Healthy Community Coalition- all earmarked for address opioid addiction issues in the region. The department plans on using the funds to hold a training for opioid investigations and to pay officers overtime.“We are dealing with overdose cases that are generating a lot of overtime,” Deputy Chief Shane Cote said.Lastly, selectmen were updated on two trucks in the Farmington Fire Department fleet that are in need of attention: Engine 1, a 2002 pumper, and Engine 2, a 1995 pumper. Engine 2 was due to be replaced next year; Chief Terry Bell said the wear and tear on that vehicle is normal for a 24-year-old piece of equipment. However, an ongoing bug with the computer system in Engine 1 may take priority.Selectmen directed Bell to gather more information, specifically on an estimated price to rebuild the systems on Engine 2 as well as the price, including any possible discounts, of replacing both engines at the same time.“There’s no easy answer,” Selectman Stephan Bunker said.
