Alderman Cory Jobe has a draft resolution urging Springfield police to gather information for a “chronic nuisance” complaint that Jobe hopes can be used to speed up the closure of the Bel-Aire Motel.
And Jobe says at least four other aldermen are supporting his push to turn up the heat on the dilapidated facility.
The Houston administration has resisted… saying it would be difficult to convince a judge to evict more than 100 people from the Bel-Aire.
But Alderman Joe McMenamin says the nuisance ordinance is specifically written to address the health and safety concerns that exist there.
Jobe plans to introduce his resolution next week.
