“What are we legally able to do,” asked councillors Myers and Hollingsworth about halting certain business downtown like the methadone clinics.
“We have to be very careful in terms of restrictions… there is case law on that point… it deals with discrimination and human rights… ” answered the city’s legal department.
Councillor Hollingsworth made the mistake of first calling the methadone rehabilitation centres, “meth labs.”
Councillor Myers wants our downtown to be more like Petoskey.
“These are people trying to rehabilitate themselves…” threw back councillor Romano who is on the Queenstown board and has only heard of one complaint so far.
