The City of Muncie has declared a northside hotel unfit for human habitation and ordered all occupants to leave by noon today.
This is the second time that the Budget Inn on Martin Luther King Junior Drive has received such a declaration, the other happened in 2009 but was lifted after repairs were made.
Owners say they will tear down the front section of the hotel and remodel the other half of the hotel into 35 long-term units.
In the meantime, current residents may be left with nowhere to go.
