WAITE PARK -- The Motel 6 in Waite Park has closed its doors.

The signage has been taken down around the building, and there's a note on the door that says, "closed, re-opening fall 2016, under a new name".

Waite Park Planning and Community Development Director Jon Noerenberg says city staff was made aware that the Motel 6 would likely be closing by the end of the month.

Noerenberg says the owner was "exploring options for the property".

He says the police department will be providing some extra monitoring for the area to limit any issues while its vacant.
