Special Village Meeting

Video Available Online

LINK: VH Special Committee of the Whole Meeting

On Tuesday, September 24 the Village Board held a special meeting on the topic of opting in or opting out of allowing recreational marijuana sales within the Village. Approximately 300 people attended the meeting, which was held at Vernon Hills High School to better accommodate attendance and audio/visual needs.

The Board did not vote on this issue at the September 24 meeting. Further, a formal vote on marijuana sales is not anticipated on the October 1 agenda, though discussion may continue at that time. Agendas are generally posted on the Village Agenda Center webpage by the Monday prior to each meeting. (Meetings are held the first and third Tuesdays of each month beginning at 7 p.m. at Village Hall, 290 Evergreen Drive, unless announced otherwise. More information appears in a later news item.)

You may view this meeting (and all Village Board Meetings) on the Village of Vernon Hills YouTube Channel.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to attend this Special Board Meeting. Residents are also encouraged to share their thoughts with Village Manager Mark Fleischhauer through email –
