YAKIMA, Wash. -- Code officials and Yakima police are cracking down on problem spots on North 1st Street. They told the Yakima Inn it's their last chance to fix their problems.

Yakima police said it's one of the worst motels in the city in terms of number of police calls. They had 163 calls in 2012 and already 30 calls this year.

Code enforcement checked for structural and electrical problems. They inspected the property Tuesday.

It's the first of several motels the city has put on notice. If they don't fix the problem, property owners could face fines or their business being shut down.

Code administration officials said they are taking a more proactive approach as a result of the Yakima citizen survey.
