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

And the Alamogordo Daily News reports ( that Otero County officials are deciding whether to relocate staff that can no longer put up with the putrid smell in the Administration Annex Building's basement.

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

Officials say the exact cause of the recurring smell is unclear.

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