ST. JOHNSBURY — The town sent a notice earlier this month to the owner of the Fairbanks Inn, claiming the motel was in violation of zoning rules by housing guests long-term through the state’s voucher program.

“Fairbanks Inn may not continue to use the building as transitional housing, long-term dwelling units or any other uses other than a motel/hotel without the approval of the Development Review Board,” noted Zoning Administrator Paul Berlejung in a letter dated July 1 to Dhruv Patel, owner of Fairbanks Inn.
