That's ridiculous - living at a motel is a stepping stone on the road to getting real affordable housing, so tenants can't expect to be allowed to stay indefinitely, but 30 days is NOT enough time to save the money required for 1st, last & security on ANY apartment on Cape while working a low-paying job AND paying your current bills. I agree that there should be some restriction on the length of time a tenant can stay in area motels, but I'd say that a 90 day maximum stay would be more reasonable.

This is jus a waste of time and money and in the end it will cost the town way more money to now house hundreds of homeless Families that cannot afford 1st last and security!! Way to go again a bunch of washashores again running locals off our island! Question, who is gonna do all your grunt work when we are all gone???
