HOBBS, N.M. (AP) - Construction of a courthouse in southeastern New Mexico is a year behind schedule and more delays are expected.

Documents obtained by the Hobbs News-Sun show there remained 101 non-conforming issues as of May 2 for the planned Lea County Judicial Complex.

The five-story structure in Lovington, New Mexico, was supposed to be occupied in August 2018.

Lea County Chairwoman Rebecca Long says many issues with the project haven't been addressed yet. For example, she says one of the main drains is cemented in and there are possible leaks in the roof.

County officials contracted Albuquerque-based HB Construction, Inc., in December 2016 to build the facility for around $30 million. HB Construction President Matthew Mulligan says all parties are working actively to get the project to the finish line.
