HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - July 13, 2018 - PRLog -- After the city of Huntington sued a local recovery home, it evicted the residents and it has remained closed but the fight between representatives of the facility and city officials goes on.

Officials claimed the home had been operating illegally and that the people in charge of it failed to meet a number of required licenses to run a business.

City Attorney Scott Damron was the person who signed the lawsuit against the owner of the sober living home and the person who managed the operations of the house.

Damron added that sober living homes have the right to operate in residential parts of the city but there are limits and permissions imposed by law.

Local zoning ordinances impose a limit of one sober living home or halfway house per residential district.

The persons running the sober living home received the complaint on April 25 and the business was given 20 days to respond to the lawsuit.

The manager of operations of the recovery house stated that all of the residents had vacated the house on the same day that the complaint was received.

On September 7, another hearing may possibly grant the sober living home a new status.
