T-Mobile Adds Microsoft 365 To Small Business Plans

Having to manage connectivity and IT and pay for both is just another added layer of complexity for many business owners. To address two of those challenges at once, T-Mobile offers a new set of small business rate plans. Besides adding these plans, T-Mobile is also getting more serious about supporting business users by doubling the team dedicated to helping SMBs and has updated its more than 7,000 retail locations to serve small and medium businesses better.

Muskegon adds Apple Avenue site to marijuana business area

MUSKEGON, MI — “Confusion” over who owns, or will own, a lot on on Apple Avenue has resulted in the property being removed from consideration for recreational marijuana businesses, at least for now.

The property at 885 E. Apple Ave. had been included in a list of eight properties the Muskegon City Commission considered for inclusion in the city’s marijuana district.

The other seven properties have been approved, but the lot at 885 E. Apple Ave. was rejected by city commissioners last week on a 5-2 vote. That was after it was revealed the property did not have a Black owner, as some commissioners believed, and there may be “legal issues” involved in a pending sale.

City staff had recommended approving the site for marijuana retail sales and microbusiness, which is retail sales of cannabis grown on site.

news, latest-news
