ELKO, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) —
WEST WENDOVER, Nev. (AP) – The West Wendover City Council has approved a land sale and lease that clears the way for the first medical marijuana facility in Elko County.
The Elko Daily Free Press reports the council approved the deal this week with the Mesquite-based DRN Holdings, also known as Deep Roots Harvest, to house the medical pot dispensary on 3 acres (1.2 hectares) in the West Wendover industrial park on the Nevada-Utah line.
City Manager Chris Melville said Tuesday the annual lease will bring the city about $20,000 annually over five years with three potential extensions and an option to purchase the land after two years at fair market value.
The council also agreed to sell about 10 acres (4 hectares) to BRLS NV Properties V, also known as Harvest of Nevada, for $718,740 to build a marijuana cultivation and production facility.
