  TRUSTEES DECLARE WAGON WHEEL MOTEL IS A PUBLIC NUISANCE  
  May 16, 2019 Edition  
     Meeting on Monday night, Boardman Trustees unanimously approved a resolution declaring the Wagon Wheel Motel, 7015 Market St., as a public nuisance.
      The motel has been cited numerous times over the past eight years by the Ohio Department of Commerce/Division of the State Fire Marshal with a variety of violations during annual inspections, including failing to maintain fire and life safety systems, bed bugs, poor interior conditions of rooms, structural issues and even pigeon droppings and nesting in some exterior areas of the decaying building.
      On Mar. 28, Lt. William Ferrando Jr., of the Boardman Fire Department, and Jeffrey Ursoseva, chief building official of the Mahoning County Building Inspection Department, visited the Wagon Wheel where they concluded the condition of interior walls and floors were deteriorating, the roof showed some signs of deterioration and there was minor structural instability, and also said the motel had no operational fire system.
      Uroseva said the Wagon Wheel had 30 days from the date of the Mar. 28 inspection to appeal the findings. The Wagon Wheel was then issued an adjudication order.
      “To comply with this order, the following must be completed within 30 days (by May 3),” Uroseva said, noting walkways, driveways and entrances where structural deterioration is evident must be secured, plans had to be submitted to any needed repairs and if the plans were approved, all work had to be inspected.
      “If after 30 days the corrections have not been made, or an appeal has not been filed,” Uroseva said he would take the necessary steps “to have the courts order the occupants to vacate the building...[then] prove the building is safe for habitation.”
      Under terms of the abatement order, the Wagon Wheel could lose its occupancy permit that is issued by Mahoning County.
      According to Boardman Fire Chief Mark Pitzer, the Wagon Wheel has filed no appeal of the abatement order.
      While a May 3 deadline has passed with no further word from county officials, the resolution unanimously approved by Trustees Larry Moliterno, Tom Costello and Brad Calhoun on Monday night, gives the Wagon Wheel another 30 day window to appeal that decision.
