Keene is not, in fact, claiming that the opioid crisis has cost the city millions of dollars per year. The correct estimate is in the hundreds of thousands, City Attorney Thomas P. Mullins said Wednesday.
Mullins arrived at the rough cost estimate after talking to other city officials, including in the fire and police departments, he said. There has not been a formal calculation of all of the costs.
