Among those speaking was Sturgis Police Department Patrolman Jerred Hegstrom who encouraged state oversight of advertising of cannabis, alcohol and tobacco products which can be targeted at youth.

Sturgis City Manager Daniel Ainslie says they heard from the city’s Ambulance Department, who discussed E.M.T. retirement and shortages.

Also discussed were airport matters, the Rally and its impact on the state, plus allowing municipalities to join the state’s healthcare pool.
