I spoke earlier this morning with Mr. Sparks about the Budget Motel and ongoing issues. "This is on our radar."
He told me the water had been off for three days before they paid their bill last week. This is the third time the water has been turned off this year. The Transient Occupy Tax was delinquent but has been paid off.
Mr. Sparks reiterated EPD Captain Steve Watson's comment about the number of service calls to the Budget Motel.
The city code and law enforcement code issues are being debated, said Mr. Sparks.
"We know there are building code issues and this developing a into chronic issues complaint."
According to another citizen tip, the County and City of Eureka are working together for a long term solution to the issues and the people living at the Budget Motel.
