NM county struggling with stinky building

ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) – A county government building in southern New Mexico stinks. Literally.

The Alamogordo Daily News reports that Otero County officials are wrestling with a smelling problem at its Administration Annex Building’s basement and may even relocate staff that can’t put up with the sewer odor anymore.

Commissioner Ronny Rardin said Thursday he’s worried about the staff since the foul odor is permeating the building’s substructure. He says the putrid scent has been ongoing since the county first moved into the building in 2008.

Officials the exact cause of the recurring smell is unknown.

Otero County Assessor Donald Yee, who works in the building, says efforts to get rid of the stench have been unsuccessful.
