COLONIE – The Skylane Motel in Colonie will close next week.
The town attorney says police found 250 code violations in the motel's rooms.
Fines for those violations are approaching $400,000. The motel’s owner may also face charges in addition to the fines.
The town is giving residents a little more than a week’s notice to make arrangements.
Most of the tenants of the motel are registered sex offenders. The town attorney tells NewsChannel 13 that the motel has a license allowing them to house sex offenders.
