CANTON, N.Y. (WWNY) - Funding for a methadone clinic in St. Lawrence County was narrowly accepted Monday night.

The county Board of Legislators voted 8-7 to accept a $900,000 federal grant.

St. Lawrence Health System will run the clinic, which is meant to help people recovering from drug addiction.

It will be built near Massena but a final decision on where is still up for debate.
