Commission Opts Not to Buy Former Inn

Share this post

It wasn't what the Mayor wanted, but the Portage Redevelopment Commission this week voted against buying the former Travel Inn on US 20, which was closed by the city in January due to multiple fire code violations. At a special meeting Thursday, the Times reports the commission voted against spending up to 725-thousand dollars to acquire it, with members saying it was a lot to spend at this time. The mayor said buying it, to tear it down, was the only way to make sure it didn't turn into a crime-ridden facility, and said the city will have to work with the new owners to make sure it doesn't .
