Cheap accommodations sought after rooming houses close

Several people are looking for new, cheap accomodations after the fire department ordered two rooming houses on Dominion Street closed for fire code violations last week.

The Times and Transcript reports 15-18 people have until December 7th to find someplace else to live. The agency Big Hearts Small City is looking around for other rooms but says it’s hard to find a replacement when tenants have only been paying about $300 a month in rent and they also have to come up with money for a security deposit on a new place.
