Time is running out for cannabis shops in Vernon that haven’t followed the city’s rules.
The city’s deadline for registering a covenant on the title of their property is 4:30 Friday afternoon.
The City’s Community Development director, Kim Flick, told council, those stores will be ordered to close, and be subject to one thousand dollar a day fines, if they stay open.
“If they do not agree to close, in addition to the fine, we will seek an injunction to force their closure,” says Flick.
The stores have been notified of the process, and at last report, five shops had not complied with the rules.
