Truro Board of Health Orders Repairs to Motor Inn

TRURO – The Truro Board of Health has voted 4-1 in favor of ordering the owner of the Truro Motor Inn to make repairs to the property.

The board saw the fixes as necessary to ensure safety, and ordered work to be well underway by the end of the month.

The board made the decision after owner Daniel DelGizzi delayed to comply with the town’s previous attempts to bring the Truro Motor Inn up to standard.

“Despite years, decades, of effort on this board to get compliance from the DelGizzi family, this has been allowed to continue, and continue, and continue,” said board member Mark Peters.

Carolyn DelGizzi, speaking on behalf of the property and daughter-in-law of the owner, argued that the site is in fine and safe condition.

“All our previous inspections…there was never any problem with any of this that I’m aware of, at least,” she said.

“Or if there were minor things, they were taken care of right away.”

Specifically, DelGizzi insisted that there was no issue with the site’s septic system, a point of contention she had with the board.

The Truro Motor Inn is the home of many residents, some of which argued at the meeting that eviction from the site would lead to mass homelessness.

Town Attorney Gregg Corbo advised the board that an option moving forward is receivership. There, the rent of the tenants would go towards repairing and improving the site.
