Townsend motel shut down, safety and health violations

City officials shut down a motel, "The Family Inns of America," in Townsend for health and safety violations on Friday.

The fire marshal and city codes inspector examined the 40 unit building on Tuesday and found several health and safety violations.

Officials said the motel's roof leaks, mold is rampant throughout the building and the smoke detectors do not work.

Authorities said the Health Department and Convention and Visitor's Bureau have received several complaints about the motel.

Police Chief Ron Suttles said his department has responded to several reports of theft, fights and drug overdoses at this location over the past three years.
