Jobe Gives Mayor 10 Days to Shutdown Bel Aire Motel

A Springfield alderman wants more aggressive action on a notorious city eyesore… but Mayor Mike Houston says the problem can’t be resolved that quickly.


Alderman Cory Jobe issued a statement Wednesday giving Houston 10 business days to close the Bel-Aire Motel and start condemnation proceedings.


Jobe says if that deadline isn’t met, he will introduce an ordinance before the City Council to make it happen.


But a spokesman for the mayor says there are major legal hurdles that would have to be cleared. He says Houston has been in talks with the lawyer for the Bel-Aire’s absentee owner, and that the city continues to issue citations for numerous building code violations.


But Jobe says that approach is ineffective.
