The marijuana moratorium in Bonney Lake has an expiration date of May 4.
The Bonney Lake City Council passed ordinance 1468 on Oct. 22, 2013 and it went into effect on Nov. 4.
The council discussed the ordinance at the workshop on April 1.
“The discussion centered around whether to ban (marijuana) outright or determine allowable zoning districts,” City Administrator Don Morrison said.
The council is moving forward to keep the moratorium in place, Mayor Neil Johnson said.
The extension of the moratorium was scheduled to be considered by the council at the Tuesday, April 8, meeting, after the press deadline, Morrison said.
The council will ask the Planning Commission to consider all possible options for Bonney Lake.
The planning commission will spend the next six months reviewing the options, Johnson said.
“Once the information comes back to council, (we) will review (it) and decide on a course of action,” Johnson said.
A public hearing regarding the moratorium is scheduled for May 13.
