The mayor pro-tem of Mead says that he proposed the idea of bringing marijuana shops to town as a way of raising much needed revenue for infrastructure, but it was about a year-and-a-half ago.

He wonders why a group is now working to have him and another town trustee recalled, saying the petition is coming “very late.”

“We viewed that as a potential source of revenue,” Mayor Pro-Tem Herman Schranz said of cannabis sales. “We have not pushed it forward.”
