OZARK, Mo.– Synergy Recovery Center was granted approval by a Christian County board Wednesday afternoon to build a men’s recovery center in Ozark.
The board granted approval under three conditions:
- No more than 10 clients or occupants at a time
- Clients or occupants must pass a background check
- An automated external defibrillator(AED) must be present in the building
The Christian County Board of Adjustment members comprised of Ralph Phillips, Ray Weter, and Hosea Bilyeu voted 2-1 in approval. Phillips was the no vote.
Christian County Sheriff Brad Cole said it could take between two and twenty minutes for a medical or emergency response to the center.
Nearby residential property owners are concerned about violence occurring at the center.
