Those attending the April meeting of the Irvington Community Council were told that the attorney for the Indy East Motel had made an offer to close the Indy East Motel in exchange for dropping the various legal actions against the motel. There are currently three (3) legal actions surrounding the closing of the Indy East. The terms of the offer proposed by the Indy East include listing the motel property for sale with a licensed real estate broker; closing the motel thirty (30) days after a sale or by the end of this year, which ever comes first; that the owner would not apply for a motel license in 2009 or any time thereafter; and that while the motel remains in operation they would provide uniformed security on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Late last week, the City made a counter offer. The Irvington Community Council has made arrangements for the lead attorney for the City, Mrs. Teri Kendrick, to come to Irvington and discuss the status of the three (3) legal cases and discuss the motel's offer. The discussion will begin at 7:00pm tonight in Room G1 of the Irvington Presbyterian Church, 55 South Johnson Avenue. All in Irvington are welcome and encouraged to attend and find out the latest on the Indy East Motel.
