The city of Las Vegas has entered into a 20-year lease for the old state police building at 301 Mills Ave.
The city is planning to relocate its utilities department, currently located on 12th Street, to the Mills Avenue building.
“It will be a major and very positive change from 12th Street to Mills Avenue,” Mayor Alfonso Ortiz said.
Ortiz said the lease agreement was effective on Sept. 15. The city is paying the state of New Mexico $1 a year for use of the building, but it will have to pay for all improvements to the facility.
