LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Negotiations are underway between the city of Las Cruces and federal government over the potential sale of the city’s old City Hall building.

City Manager Robert Garza tells the Las Cruces Sun-News (https://bit.ly/1JIaISz ) that the federal government is seeking bids for developing offices for federal employees associates with the courts.

In April 2010, the city moved its government offices from its older North Church Street location to a North Main Street address.

Since then, the old City Hall has relatively empty and unused.

Federal officials declined to comment on possible transactions while negotiations are underway.

Mayor Ken Miyagishima says he believes the former City Hall building could be sold for “less than $2 million.”
