A proposed Methadone Treatment Centre for Bancroft won’t get financial support from Hastings-Quinte Social Services.
The Social Services Committee has decided to take no action on a request for funding.
A staff report to the committee pointed to the “significant budget challenges” of the member municipalities and the provincial cap on discretionary spending.
Committee chair Mayor Bernice Jenkins of Bancroft says the methadone treatment is “an unknown” for many people and “perhaps could be looked at next year.”
