Sanborn, N.Y. (WIVB) - It was unused because of government red tape, but now a rehab center in Niagara County won't have to wait much longer to open.
On Tuesday News 4's Lou Raguse reported on Freedom Village, a rehab center for veterans that hasn't been used yet. Administrators say they're ready to open but New York State told them paperwork would take 4 months to approve.
After Lou's story aired, Sen. George Maziarz spoke with the Commissioner of the Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services, or OASAS.
As a result, Sen. Maziarz now says the paperwork will clear on Monday, meaning Freedom Village can accept patients as early as next week.
After Lou's story aired, OASES emailed Lou a statement blaming Freedom Village for the delay.
