City Manager Chris Melville says the City Council will finish the work on its end and then send the application to the state Department of Taxation, which could issue a medical marijuana license.

Melville says that Deep Roots, which was granted a tentative medical dispensary certificate by the state, plans to build a dispensary with a warehouse to start.

He says Deep Roots might later consider a cultivation and production facility, if the company receives separate state approval.

West Wendover will permit only one medical dispensary.
