WESTMORLAND — The City Council, sitting as the Redevelopment Agency, has agreed to sell property at Highway 86 and H Street to a local developer that would use the land to build a 50-room motel.
The property will be sold to High Spirits LP for $1 as an incentive to develop the motel, which, city official said, would bring in much-needed property tax revenue.
High Spirits LP is owned by Dr. Veerinder Anand of El Centro and Rick Desai of Las Vegas.
The Redevelopment Agency bought the property from Brawley resident Clark Seybert for $42,000.
The council also is attempting to purchase property from Westmorland resident Steve Dickerson for the development of a residential drug-treatment facility for women.
