Washington is expected to complete the purchase of a collapsed downtown building within a week. City Administrator Dave Plyman says owner Alfonso Raymundo accepted their offer of just over 12-thousand dollars. The city has advanced Raymundo 90-thousand dollars for the demolition. He was awarded 227-thousand dollars in May from a civil suit brought against two companies working on the building prior to the collapse.
