Bangor Daily News
December 12, 2016

The Bangor City Council voted 7-0 to rescind an ordinance in compliance with a lawsuit settlement and to allow the Penobscot County Metro Treatment to treat additional 200 patients. 

An Excerpt

"The center’s attorney, John Doyle, said the center could get its license to expand treatment from 300 to 500 clients as early as Tuesday. He said that the first half-dozen patients will likely begin treatment on Wednesday, once they have physicals, with another half-dozen beginning treatment by Friday. Penobscot County Metro is grateful for the council’s quick action, Doyle said. 'It has always been about getting the treatment going,' Doyle said after the council vote."
