NYSSA, Ore. (AP) - The Nyssa City Council is set to vote on an ordinance prohibiting commercial marijuana operations.

The Argus Observer reports (https://bit.ly/1VIZEKQ ) that a first reading of the ordinance was approved at the council’s regular monthly meeting July 14. A special meeting, scheduled for Tuesday, has been called to have another reading due to a time limit on getting an ordinance passed.

The commercial marijuana operations included in the ordinance are marijuana processing sites and medical marijuana dispensaries. Also included are marijuana producers, processors, wholesalers and retailers within city limits.

If council members unanimously approve the second reading, a third reading will be waived.

Vale and Ontario city councils have already passed similar ordinances. The Malheur County Court will have a second public hearing on its ordinance Aug. 5.
