EUREKA- The City of Eureka will execute a warrant to close a motel next month, citing multiple violations.

The warrant is for the Blue Heron, located on the 2000 of Broadway.  Officials say the owners, Floyd and Betty Squires, have not secured a valid lodging permit over the last two years, as required by the City’s motel ordinance.  Representatives also say the 15-room residence places a disproportionate burden on the city’s emergency services, with more than six calls per service per room for the annual average.  The City also cites multiple building code violations, ranging from broken heaters to cockroach infestations.  Officials have put the motel’s residents in contact with local agencies to help them find alternative housing.
