Non - Consent Agenda

First Reading Ordinances

6. Council Bill/General Ordinance 3003-2020

An Ordinance amending Chapter 26, “POLICE,” of the Moline Code of Ordinances, Section 26-2318, “UNIFORMS,” subsection (b), to authorize the Chief of Police sole responsibility for decisions pertaining to Moline Police personnel uniforms, with the exception of the uniform allowance set annually by the City Council; and ratifying all prior actions of Chief of Police Darren Gault pertaining to Moline Police personnel uniforms.

Explanation: Section 26-2318(b) of the Moline Code of Ordinances allows the Chief of Police (“Chief”) to appoint and regulate the style and quality of uniforms for all police department members by and with the approval of the Committee-of-the-Whole of the City Council; subsection (d) provides for a uniform allowance to be set annually by the City Council. Due to various timing issues, including term restrictions of grants available for uniform purchase, manufacturing, and the City’s budgeting process, the Chief recently deemed it prudent to make certain uniform related decisions without prior consent of the Committee-of-the-Whole. The Code of Ordinances allows the Chief to have control and be responsible for all police equipment belonging to the City and to cause a record of all transactions and expenditures to be kept; allowing the Chief the authority for decisions pertaining to the police personnel uniforms will align with these duties. This ordinance will amend Section 26-2318, subsection (b), to authorize the Chief sole responsibility for decisions pertaining to Moline Police personnel uniforms; the exception of the uniform allowance set forth annually by the City Council under subsection (d) will remain unchanged. Further, Chief Darren Gault and Corporation Counsel seek ratification of all prior actions by Gault pertaining to Moline Police personnel uniforms.

7. Council Bill/General Ordinance 3004-2020

An Ordinance amending Chapter 35, “ZONING AND LAND DEVELOPMENT,” of the Moline Code of Ordinances, by enacting one new Division 8, “ADULT USE CANNABIS BUSINESSES;” and amending Table 35-2200.1, pertaining to non-administrative development review, by adding “Special Use Permit Adult Use Cannabis” to the table’s list of procedures.

Explanation: In June 2019, the State of Illinois enacted Public Act 101-0027, the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act (the “Act”), effective January 1, 2020, to regulate the cultivation, sale, possession, and consumption of cannabis in Illinois. The Act authorizes the sale and consumption of cannabis for recreational purposes for adult use only in a manner similar to alcohol. The term “adult” refers to any person 21 years of age or older. Pursuant to the Act, the City is authorized to regulate adult use cannabis businesses, such as dispensaries, cultivation centers, infusers, transporters, processers, and craft growers (collectively, “Cannabis Business Establishments”); enact reasonable zoning ordinances or resolutions regulating Cannabis Business Establishments; enact ordinances governing the time, place, manner, and number of Cannabis Business Establishments to be located within the City, including certain minimum distance limitations; enact ordinances to prohibit or significantly limit Cannabis Business Establishments’ locations; regulate Cannabis Business Establishments through the use of special use permits; and regulate the on-premises consumption of cannabis at or in a Cannabis Business Establishment.

This ordinance will enact a new division to Chapter 35 of the Code of Ordinances for the City’s regulation of adult use cannabis businesses and the process for zoning approvals. It will also establish three cannabis dispensary overlay districts within Moline; the overlay districts will allow for the construction, operation, maintenance, repair and replacement of a single cannabis dispensary within each overlay district. A public hearing was held during the January 8, 2020, Plan Commission meeting, and the Plan Commission unanimously approved the ordinance amendment to proceed; the amendment was presented at the January 21, 2020, Committee-of-the-Whole (“COW”) meeting. Attached to this item is a redline version of the ordinance showing changes made pursuant to discussion at the COW meeting, maps of the cannabis dispensary overlay districts that will be contained in the ordinance, and a second Uptown Corridor map showing the 100’ separation from dispensary to building, as requested by Council at the January 21, 2020, COW meeting. Additional documentation attached.
