BROOME COUNTY (WBNG) -- You'll have a chance to weigh in and learn more information about a proposed drug treatment facility during a public hearing Tuesday.
County Executive Jason Garnar wants the former Broome Developmental Center in the town of Dickinson to be turned in a center to help people dealing with addiction.
Syracuse Behavioral Healthcare would operate the facility.
"In November the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services sent a funding award letter to Broome County for $2,300,000 for Fiscal Year 2018," according to the county.
The Broome County Legislature must approve the plan, which is something that has been at the center of controversy.
The public hearing is at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Broome County Office Building on the 6th floor in the Legislative Chambers.
Written comments will also be accepted. Those can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
