City Council will be conducting a Medical Marijuana Listening Session. At this facilitated, bilingual session, the City Council seeks to share information with Fillmore residents on its deliberation of requests for permission to cultivate medical marijuana within the city limits. Residents will be engaged in a structured and respectful sharing of personal views to inform the City Council of the breadth of views on this important topic.
