Officials in Boyd County are vowing to do everything they can to stop a planned addiction recover center.

The Independent reports the action came Tuesday following an hour-long meeting in which residents near the proposed location vocally opposed the Recovery Kentucky center citing concerns about safety and property values.

Officials proposing the Recovery Kentucky center tried to explain their plans, but the newspaper reports some of the answers were cut off by angry comments and some speakers were heckled.

A local organization, Pathways Inc., would operate the center. Pathways CEO Kim McClanahan said the center is meant to be an asset to the community. She said she was unsure what action the Pathways board would take next.

There are 10 Recovery Kentucky centers across the state.
