Boo on yarmouth! i have been homeless in the past. it is true, a motel room is not ideal for families especially as a place to live. but it is better than living in a car or worse. The towns on the cape should devise a plan to create year round housing for these folks. don't penalize motel owners for being there for them when you are not.
