The Town of Gibbons is giving residents another chance to voice their opinion on cannabis.
Residents turned a blind eye to Gibbons' cannabis public hearing in July. The town will be holding a second meeting at council chambers on August 22 at 6:30 p.m., right before their regular meeting.
"We're letting the people come out and voice their opinion, or if they choose not to, then we're on the right track," said Gibbons mayor Dan Deck. "I don't think we're going to have any issues with the land use bylaw. I think there will be more issues coming with the cannabis legislation once the first retail establishment opens."
The hearing is open for residents to ask questions or voice their concerns regarding the sale, distribution and use of cannabis in Gibbons.
