  Wagon Wheel Motel Reopens Under Court Order Of 4-Phase Plan Of Improvements  
  October 17, 2019 Edition  
     ‘Given the current condition of the motel, and the proposed schedule of repairs, the Wagon Wheel Motel is no longer unsafe or structurally defective, and does not present a condition which endangers the lives of occupants, or other buildings or property.”
      A temporary restraining order that was issued on May 24, and that closed down the Wagon Wheel Motel, 7015 Market St., has been lifted by Mahoning County Common Pleas Judge John Durkin, allowing the facility to reopen.
      On a hearing in May, the court found the business was a hazard, “insecure, unsafe and structurally defective.’ Magistrate Don DeLarentis said the structure was in dilapidated condition, had defective or poorly-installed electrical wiring equipment, and the building was “especially liable to fire, or endangers life.”
      In allowing the motel to reopen, Judge Durkin said “the defendants (Akm and Nasrin Rahman, 29 Overhill Rd.; and Chirag Enterprises, Chirag Patel, statutory agent, of 1715 Turkey Foot Lake Rd., Akron, Oh.) have undertaken significant efforts in improve the condition of the property...however, the work is not complete.
      He also noted that Officer William Ferrando, of the Boardman Fire Department “believes that given the current condition of the motel, and the proposed schedule of repairs, the Wagon Wheel Motel is no longer unsafe or structurally defective, and does not present a condition which endangers the lives of occupants, or other buildings or property.”
      In lifting the restraining order, owners/operators of the motel agreed to undertake a four-phase repair schedule that must be completed by Aug. 1, 2022.
      The first phase of the improvements must be completed by Nov. 1, 2019 and includes removal of all temporary tarp and plastic roof patches that must be replaced with “compatible permanent patches.”
      According to the court’s settlement agreement on the matter, “The motel agrees that it will cease operation if any of the work identified on any phase has not been satisfactorily completed.”
      The settlement agreement mandates that plans for any repairs must be submitted to the Mahoning County Building Department “or other agencies or departments with jurisdiction,” and the dismissal “does not relieve the (Wagon Wheel) of complying with any orders of the Division of the State Fire Marshal.”
