41 Action News talked with Hitesh Bhakta, the manager and son of the Budget Inn Motel's owners.
Bhakta says city council is unfairly unsatisfied with efforts he has made to improve the conditions of the motel in accordance with its requirements to ease the suspension to 30 days.
Bhakta says a requested reinforcement to the property fence is in place and cages surround all smoke detectors, preventing people from tampering with them.
Additionally, Bhakta says the motel has upgraded its security camera system and ended its policy of allowing guest to rent rooms for a week-long span. He contends the steps have dropped the frequency of police calls to the property drastically.
The council noted in its findings that Bhakta has made efforts, but concluded that evidence of past city code violations supports the 60-day suspension.
Bhakta says his family will likely appeal the suspension in court.
