Interest ‘high’: Springfield gets 24 marijuana business applications

The city received 24 applications by Monday’s deadline from companies interested in opening marijuana businesses, most of which made voluntary public presentations last week.

Theo Theocles, the city’s deputy procurement director, said the applications were opened and then forwarded to a city review committee for a full evaluation and recommendations. The information in the proposals is being kept confidential pending the review, Theocles said.
