Code violations lead to closure of Centralia motel

CENTRALIA — Residents of the Home Motel in Centralia have a few days to find other living arrangements.

According to Gayla Harting,
Community Development/Planning & Zoning Director for the City of Centralia, the establishment will be closed Tuesday due to numerous code violations that have rendered it uninhabitable.

Harting says after several issues over the last year-and-a-half, the business owner was given a deadline of May first to have those issues repaired or the rooms must be emptied.

Tax records show the motel, located at 326 W Noleman in Centralia, is owned by Bhup and Rita Yadav. Harding explains that signs have been posted on each room of the business notifying customers of the upcoming closure date.
