Branson Community Team Starts Relocating 76 Inn Guests Amid Closure Notice

BRANSON, Mo – A Branson community team has started coordinating the housing and necessary transportation for the relocation of people who are staying at the 76 Inn who would like to move. This is after the power to the motel was shut off a short time on Monday and an official closure notice from the City of Branson was issued.

After trying to work with the out-of-state owners of the motel for two months to keep the power account in good standing, and several notifications, White River Valley Electric Cooperative (WRVEC) shut the power off to the motel Monday morning. At the time about 50 rooms were being rented, some with children and elderly.

Branson city and community partners acted quickly, working with WRVEC to get the power back on, temporarily so a plan could be put into place to relocate residents. This gives the City and guests time to make arrangements for those that will be displaced. If the 76 Inn’s WRVEC account is still not in good standing by Friday, the power will be shut off again.

The City has also worked with the owners towards compliance on a number of city ordinances and health codes for months. Because the owners have failed to comply with city and state regulations and public health matters, the City has issued a closure notice, affective April 18th. The City continues to work with the owners of the motel toward compliance on those issues.

The community response team is made up of City officials, the Taney County Health Department, The Taney County Animal Shelter, Branson Animal Control, Branson Public Works, the Salvation Army and Jesus Was Homeless. They will be coordinating resources to assist with the care of displaced occupants and their pets, develop and provide a trash removal process for guests and provide inspections, education and resources to minimize any health issues.
