After many complaints, Huntington's Methadone Clinic may be shut down.

Mayor David Felinton says the clinic must be closed because it has become a nuisance.

Each week, dozens of clients line up outside the facility on Fourth Avenue to get their methadone to kick their drug habit. But nearby businesses are complaining about panhandling, thefts and a large amount of litter from the clients.

Mayor Felinton will meet with clinic director Nancy Price next week to discuss the problems.
