SB School Board denied stay on clinic construction

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

A judge has denied The South Burlington School Board's request for a stay on the construction of a proposed methadone clinic.

Public health officials say the clinic is desperately needed. School officials have acknowledged the need in the community for drug treatment, but are opposed to the Dorset Street location because of its proximity to city schools.

"I'm disappointed, I'm still disappointed. I didn't agree with the judge's view that the construction of the development will not present an immediate risk of irreparable harm," said Rich Cassidy, the South Burlington School Board Chairman.

Cassidy says the board will meet this coming Wednesday to discuss the ruling and how to move forward.

The environmental court has not yet ruled on the district's appeal of the project.
