Local Contractor Files Complaint Over Holiday Inn Express

A local contractor has filed a complaint with the city over structural integrity concerns at the Holiday Inn Express.

You remember, the hotel voluntarily closed in early February due to dangerous structural designs. It re-opened when the city checked those issues and declared them resolved. Contractor Don Hicks, however, says the city allowed the hotel to build in violation of its own building codes.

"All I want the city to do is fess up that they have deviated from their own standards, the ordinances, and the things they were sworn to uphold," said Hicks.

Steve O'Neal, the city's chief building inspector, said he has a copy of the complaint but has not read it. Even so, he says that engineers have examined the building and determined that it is safe.
