September 24, 2017
LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — The Fort Sill Apache Tribe has been awarded $800,000 from the federal government to help build a fuel station on its property in southern New Mexico.
Tribal Chairman Jeff Haozous tells the Las Cruces Sun-News (http://bit.ly/2nktMQw) that details still need to be worked out for the project at Akela Flats, but he believes it will be larger than a similar project the tribe recently started in Oklahoma.
That $2.5 million project includes construction of a 4,000-square-foot convenience store and a gas station.
Work on the New Mexico project is expected to begin next yea...
