Reno City Council members are debating whether to tear down two rundown motels located in the heart of downtown.
At a meeting Tuesday, Mayor Hillary Schieve says she’s is in favor of removing urban blight.
“No one wants it to stay like that, I mean we all understand that," Schieve says. "Let’s be honest here, we all want the same thing, we want downtown to look great.”
Councilwoman Jenny Brekhus supports giving a local developer more time to make an offer on the properties. The developer has plans to turn it into a boutique motel.
