Nevada County to spend nearly $100K on marijuana consultant

NEVADA CITY, Calif. — Nevada County officials on Friday announced MIG, Inc., of Berkeley, Calif., as their choice for cannabis consultant.

MIG — which offers planning, design, communications and management services — will assist the county in crafting a permanent marijuana grow ordinance. It will help select members of an advisory committee and lead meetings of that group before presenting recommendations to the Board of Supervisors.

County officials said they expect MIG to immediately begin the stakeholder process.

“MIG was selected to independently facilitate a good-faith, inclusive, and participatory process with stakeholders to ensure that the long-term cannabis regulations recommendations to the Board of Supervisors are representative of the community and reflect a sound process,” officials wrote in an email.

MIG’s selection as cannabis consultant is contingent on a vote by the supervisors. The initial contract cost is $98,900.

MIG was one of 16 groups that applied for the position. The county selected five finalists, of which MIG was one, earlier this month.
