MORRISTOWN, NJ- Morristown council said it has made progress on developing a committee to establish permanent regulations for marijuana use during a regular meeting Tuesday. 

Although no official actions or ordinances made it onto the meeting’s agenda, members of the public spoke out against and heard an update on a temporary ban on marijuana sales within the town’s borders. Council previously stated it wanted to have guidelines prepared before applying for dispensary licenses following February’s legalization of cannabis in New Jersey. 

“In the last meeting, we set out to create a committee of residents to devise legislation about it, I would say that we have heard all your comments and appreciate your input,” said Council President Stefan Armington.

Armington said that the council has received interest from about a dozen people in joining the committee, and he has asked each councilmember to recommend two members from their ward to represent. 

The council approved a motion designating official tow companies for the Morristown Police’s rotating call list in the 2021 calendar year during the meeting. An additional resolution allowed Mesler’s Auto Body, C&L Towing and Basking Ridge Towing to become licensed as private trespass towing companies in the town, as well. Council also adopted an ordinance amending a section of the Land Development Ordinance regarding stormwater control regulations.
