Selectman Dennis Giombetti wants the Framingham Police to look into the amount of crime taking place at Motel 6 on Route 9 in Framingham.
Recently, emergency crews were called to aid a drug overdose victim.
"This hotel has been a problem for a number of years," Giombetti told his fellow Selectmen last week.
"I'd like the Police Chief to reach out to the owners and management - local, regional and corporate level -- and talk to them about the activities going on at their establishment," said Giombetti.
Selectmen have the authority to decide if the motel can operate in town, said Giombetti.
"We license inn keepers," he said.
His fellow Selectmen unanimously agreed the policeshould look into crime at the motel.
