AUSTIN (KXAN) — On Friday, people living at the motel that will soon be a homeless shelter have moved out.
Last month, city council approved $320,000 to relocate 11 people who had been living at the Rodeway Inn off of I-35 and Oltorf.
They will receive assistance, a rental payment and money for the move.
Once the Rodeway Inn is converted to a shelter, it is expected to house 87 people experiencing homelessness.
It will be operated by “ECHO,” Austin’s Ending Community Homelessness Coalition.
