OROVILLE, Calif. - A ban on selling cannabis in the city of Oroville will be a discussion Tuesday night in the city council meeting as they consider placing a marijuana-related business tax on the ballot.

There have been two public meetings with a hired consultant to help the city decide whether to pursue allowing the pot to be sold within city limits.

The council is considering a business tax of up to 10 percent.

A special election could cost up to $10,000, but anticipated revenue could come in at $300,000 to $600,000 a year.

The council meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather tonight! If you do head out and plan to stay out late, probably bring an extra later to throw on for when the sun sets as temperatures will be cooling off into the low to mid 60s for the valley by midnight and low to mid 40s by tomorrow morning.
