Jobe Plans to Use Chronic Nuisance Ordinance to Attempt Crack Down on Bel Aire


A Springfield alderman is ready to try a new tactic in his push to speed up the closure of the Bel-Aire Motel… but Mayor Mike Houston says Alderman Cory Jobe is off the mark.

 

After setting a deadline of next week for more aggressive city action against the rundown residential motel, Jobe says he will introduce a resolution calling for the city to use its chronic nuisance ordinance to start moving residents out and close the Bel-Aire.

 

But Houston and corporation counsel Todd Greenburg say that ordinance is ordinarily used to forcibly evict people engaged in criminal conduct… not to remove dozens of tenants, many of whom have done nothing wrong.
