Marijuana consumption lounges will not be coming to a downtown Three Rivers storefront near you, at least not any time soon. The Three Rivers City Commission voted 4-2 against an amendment to the city’s marijuana ordinance Tuesday that would have allowed such an establishment in the central (B-3) business zoning district following a public hearing.

Three Rivers City Commissioners received an update Tuesday evening from the Three Rivers Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) regarding the July 7 force main break at the Constantine Street Lift Station. The break spilled approximately 500,000 gallons of untreated wastewater from the WWTP at the intersection of Constantine Street and Broadway Street near the St. Joseph River.
