BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) - The city of Bellingham and the owners of the condemned Aloha Motel have agreed on a price for the property.

The Bellingham Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1ez5pci ) that the City Council approved a settlement Monday in which the city will purchase the property for $1.58 million. The sale is expected to close Sept. 1 after which the motel will be demolished.

The Aloha Motel has a reputation for criminal activity, and the Whatcom County Health Department found methamphetamine contamination in 11 rooms.

After the motel is removed, city officials say they will seek proposals from developers later this year for how to redevelop the property.
