Broome Co. Legislature chairman speaks on drug treatment center

Posted: Updated:

BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- For the first time since the drug treatment saga started we're hearing from Broome County Legislature Chairman Dan Reynolds.

This week Reynolds, a Republican, revealed that a vote on the proposal could happen before the end of the year. But he says he's not yet sure if he'll vote yes.

"I'm going wait to get the final details from OASAS and the committee of the whole meeting and I'm keeping an open mind and I think all legislators are keeping an open mind on this," Chairman Reynolds said on Friday.

The facility would be housed at the former Broome Developmental Campus in Dickinson. The Committee of the Whole Legislature will meet on December 27.

After the meeting, the legislature will consider accepting nearly $3 million from New York State. 

Officials from Syracuse Behavioral Health and the New York State Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services are also expected to attend.
