SOUTH BELOIT (WREX) — A developer is eyeing South Beloit as a potential location for a cannabis dispensary.
“I’m predicting that there’s a greater benefit to this community in terms of economic gain, revenue than the down side,” said Mayor Ted Rehl.
Rehl said the city was approached by the developer, who is reportedly looking at multiple properties in different communities. The developer has yet to pick a location but Rehl said city council will talk about whether to grant a permit for construction on the potential facility.
