EVART \u2014 Following several months of delays and extensions, Attitude Wellness LLC, also known as Lume Cannabis Company, in Evart received approval for renewal of three marijuana licenses. The city received three renewal applications from Lume for their provisioning, processing and grow licenses, which were set to expire May 18. The Evart City Council gave conditional approval for the renewals during its May 17 meeting, dependent on the company getting necessary effluent testing done within 30 days. Then-city manager Sarah Dvoracek told the council during the meeting that staff was looking at developing a customizable effluent testing procedure that would test for additional contaminants other than those recommended by the Department of Energy, Great Lakes and Environment that could be harmful to the city\u2019s sewer lagoon system. \u201cThis is an evolving process and I want to make sure we are following what EGLE is saying and that we are protecting our sewer lagoon system,\u201d Dvoracek said at the time. \u201cI want to be able to test quarterly or every other month as their processes evolve. We have to make sure that nothing is harming our lagoon system.\u201d Subsequently, the council approved two extensions to the conditional approval while awaiting the results of air quality testing. Air & Water Compliance Group tested air quality samples from each exhaust vent at the facility. In September, the city received the results of the air quality tests from Air & Water Compliance Group, which stated that \u201cthe Lume facility is below state allowed emission rates for toxic air contaminants.\u201d In addition, Michigan Consulting & Environmental collected samples from each exhaust vent which were submitted to Prism Analytical Technologies for analysis. All three samples exhibited concentrations of volatile organic compound concentrations within the required limits, according to their report. \u201cIt is my understanding that you were awaiting the air quality report, which we have received,\u201d interim Evart city manager Richard Lewis said. \u201cThe summary shows that the Lume facilities are well below the toxic air emissions guidelines. I recommend you grant the renewal licenses that will be good until May 18, 2022.\u201d The motion to grant the renewals was unanimously approved.
