The City of Kamloops set the permit application fee to $1,600
The City of Kamloops is nearly prepared for legalized recreational marijuana after council set a business license fee following a public hearing on Tuesday night at Sandman Centre.
The city has now changed its zoning bylaw and included retail cannabis in its regulations for business licenses ahead of legalization, which is set for Oct. 17.
“We know that there are some other bylaws that need to be tweaked, but as far as retail cannabis sales, I think we’re pretty close to the end point,” business license inspector Dave Jones told KTW. “Now it’s just a matter of educating staff and determining how we move that forward.”
Following the public hearing, the council set the annual business license fee for cannabis stores at $5,000 and the permit application fee at $1,600.
