    • Jason Koss owns a Motel 6 near I-244 and Garnett.
    • He says he's started a contract system to keep criminals away.
    • The contract says that if drugs or illegal activity is found or suspected in a tenant's room, they will be asked to leave the property and required to pay a $150 fee.

    TULSA, Okla. - A local motel owner says he is working to clean-up his property.

    Jason Koss owns Motel 6 near I-244 and Garnett and he says he has started a contract system that seems to be helping to keep criminals away.

    The contract is only a page long and it’s signed mainly by his long-term renters.

    It specifically states “if any illegal drugs or activity is found or suspected to be going on in or through your room, you will be asked to leave the property. No refund will be given, $150 cleaning and disposal fee.”

    If a renter violates the terms of the contract, then he or she is evicted. Their stuff is cleaned out by employees and is stored until the renter pays the cleaning fee put in place by the contract.

    Koss says he rarely ever sees the people again, so he donates their stuff to Goodwill.

    Koss feels the contract system is working because his motel is now attracting different types of renters.

    He says in the last year he’s begun working with businesses and schools specifically near or at the airport to house employees and students. He hopes to have more of that in the future.
