The Sullivan City Council at its meeting Tuesday evening voted 4-2 against an ordinance that proposed making over-the-counter pseudoephedrine-based cold and allergy medicines available by prescription only. Alderman Jarrett Dace (Ward III) and Alderman Dennis Watz (Ward III) voted for the ordinance. Alderman Michael Ryan (Ward II), Alderman Paul McCulloch (Ward I), Alderman Micheal Lohden (Ward II) and Alderman Tom Leasor (Ward I) voted against the ordinance.

The City Council spent about an hour discussing the bill, which would have required prescriptions for pseudoephedrine-based products to be written by a Missouri-licensed physician and filled by a Missouri-licensed pharmacist. Aldermen made their opinions known, as did two others who were present at the meeting. Sgt. Jason Grellner, a Franklin County narcotics officer who’s been pushing for the bill in several Missouri cities, spoke at the meeting, as did a Sullivan Wal-Mart pharmacist in favor of the bill.
