PULASKI, Va. — The town of Pulaski is moving closer to allowing a methadone clinic to set up shop.
A Pennsylvania company has chosen the name "Pulaski Medical" and is planning to open the site at the Pulaski Mall.
The proposed methadone clinic would be located In a strip mall that already has its share of empty storefronts.
Pulaski's town manager says when Pulaski Medical began the licensing process, that's when the town realized it's zoning requirements were too loose.
"What brought this to our attention in our own zoning ordinance, is that we didn't have, we had a very generic definition of medical clinics," said John Hawley.
Any future substance abuse clinics would be classified as such, and the town would decide if a clinic gets a license.
