WATERVILLE — Douglas County commissioners on Tuesday approved keeping marijuana setback reductions in place.

The commission in September 2018 adopted an ordinance that reduced the 1-mile setback for outdoor cannabis farms to a half mile if the edge of the farm fence was at least 1,000 feet higher in elevation than the nearest point of the urban growth boundary.

Commissioners voted Tuesday to remove the ordinance’s expiration date of Sept. 30, 2019.
