City Of Port Huron Enters Consent Judgement With Days Inn

The City of Port Huron has entered into a Consent Judgement with the Days Inn that has been approved.  The Judgement calls for a transformation in the business practices of the Days Inn and calls for significant investment into the property. According to Port Huron City Manager James Freed, failure to comply with this agreement could result in the Hotel closing for up to a year.  Freed said the city’s goal was simple.  He stated “our community will not tolerate this type of establishment harboring and enabling criminal activity, and this needs to change. We believe this agreement, if properly executed can achieve that goal.”  In February of this year, the City filed a Verified Complaint against Port Huron Nights, Inc., the owner of the Days Inn Hotel in Port Huron located on Pine Grove Avenue, just north of the Blue Water Bridge. In the complaint the inn was described as a public nuisance which is  defined as a building or place that is “used for the unlawful manufacture, transporting, sale, keeping for sale, bartering, or furnishing of a controlled substance”  and also, the building itself was found to pose serious fire hazards.
