“I’m pleased to know you are moving forward and look forward to seeing you come online,”Williams said. “Thank you for coming to Suisun City, welcome, and we are looking forward to when you are opening.”

According to its website, Element 7 operates in Rio Dell, Marina and Port Hueneme, as well as a new one at Firebaugh. It also shows that the company has been involved in major expansions in many cities across the state, including Northern California.

Element 7 claims that it gives equity in the business directly to the community and its constituents. It also states that it brings the structure and discipline required for a national retail operations team, while maintaining the locality of the enterprise.

Council members and the public expressed concerns about train and vehicle traffic in the region, but Element 7 promised to continue studying the issue to make it as safe and secure as possible.

Stiiizy, located at 521 Railroad Ave., was the city’s first cannabis club, and the first in the Suisun City, Fairfield and Vacaville area. It was opened in the summer of 2013.

The council also voted to form a microtransit partnership between Rio Vista and Solano Transportation Authority.

The consent calendar items included Greg Folsom, the City Manager, being authorized to enter into a contract to Melton Design Group for Prosperity Gardens Park’s design plan and coordination. Additionally, the council was authorized to approve changes up to 10% of the original contract value.

The council also voted for the dissolution and dissolution of the Lighting and Landscaping District Community Advisory Committee. The council and some members of the public were not happy with this decision. However, the council voted to disband the Lighting and Landscaping District Community Advisory Committee. An alternative motion to not dissolve the committee was considered, but it was defeated in a 3-2 vote.
