Springfield City Officials say it may take two years to complete foreclosure proceedings against the Bel-Aire Motel.
The debate about how to handle the trouble residential motel on south 6th heated up this week with a proposed measure that would label the establishment a chronic nuisance.
City Corporation Counsel Todd Greenburg says he doesn’t see a judge evicting residents because of a few calls to one unit over a few months.
Alderman Cory Jobe who is spearheading the chronic nuisance tactic says leveling fines for code violations is taking too long.
Aldermen will vote Wednesday on the chronic nuisance provision.
