Prostitution Angers Business Owners

Area business owners say they are sick of seeing prostitutes around their property. One local business owners says the prostitutes are annoying and aggressive.

A business owner near the Budget Inn Motel says he has seen the prostitution problem escalate over the years he has been in business.

He says every night starting around 10, the area is crawling with 20 to 30 prostitutes.

He says his several calls to the city and the police department have gone nowhere.

But the police department says they receive three to four complaints every week; and not just from that area.

We did speak with the owner of the motel who took over four months ago.  He says he knows all too well about the problem. He has seen prostitutes walking across his property.  But he says he absolutely does not rent to them.

To try to keep them out, he is looking at installing security systems with cameras and is even considering hiring a security guard for a few hours each night.
