The city of medford has given the methadone clinic on east main street an ultimatum, close or face legal action. The clinic, which treats recovering drug addicts, has 90 days to shut down operations and re-locate. Some residents say there's no question the area attracts loiterers. "There's a lot of strangers that hang out in the alley way and around the area a lot" said Jimmy hunsaker a Medford resident. The city says the clinic is too close to daycare facilities and police say there have been multiple complaints about drug use and other nuisances. Many nearby residents did not want to speak on camera, only saying they had faith in the city to resolve the issue.
