The Madison County Council will vote at its meeting next month whether to stop funding — or donations — to the county health department’s needle exchange program. According to the Anderson Herald-Bulletin, the county council introduced an ordinance to stop funding the program which started nearly two years ago. County Public Health Coordinator Stephanie Grimes opposes it saying it’s hard to see, but the program works.
