Edgewater's $13 million civic Centre, Partially funded by cannabis cash, opens Sunday

EDGEWATER — This weekend, due to its bustling marijuana trade, this small city on the western coast of Sloan’s Lake will forge a new civic identity with the introduction of a $13 million municipal complex complete with library, police station, fitness centre and city offices.

Without $3 million in tax money from the city’s half-dozen pot shops to put toward the project’s total price, town manager HJ Stalf stated, “We’d still be chasing it. ”

And Edgewater’s police force would still be working out of a butcher’s cramped space ’s town and store staff would continue toiling out of an office furniture store-turned-city hall on Sheridan Boulevard.
