JAL, N.M. - An abandoned building in Jal is getting a new resident.
Rocky Mountain Building Systems will be moving into the Burke Junior High building.
The company builds modular homes.
The City of Jal is renting the building at a low rate of just $1,000 a year with a few conditions.
Those conditions include that rocky mountain will have to employ fifteen employees making at least $20 an hour and continue to increase the number of employees at that pay scale each year.
If they don't, rent jumps to $4,000 a year.
This is all in hopes of helping the housing situation in Jal.
The company will be building 20 housing units under the affordable housing act.
