Renton City Council unanimously voted Monday to oppose supervised consumption sites.
Mayor Denis Law said the resolution doesn’t mean the proposal is off the table. It’s just on hold for now.
“There’s so many questions being asked in terms of liabilities and in terms of how you deal with this,” Law said.
A King County task force on opioid addiction recommended the county open two sites where addicts could use under medical supervision. Proponents say the sites would reduce overdose deaths, but critics worry they would enable drug use.
