The Allen County commissioners gave final approval Friday to a ruling that will require county hotels to meet general levels of acceptable sanitation standards. Enforcement and permitting will fall to the Fort Wayne-Allen County Department of Health.
Violations include pest issues; stained or torn linens, mattresses or box springs; stained or damaged walls, ceilings or floors; water or mold issues; and overflowing trash or garbage. Non-compliance could result in fines or forced closure.
