RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Negotiations between officials from the state and the city of Raleigh have begun again regarding the future of the Dorothea Dix Hospital campus.

Former Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue signed a $68 million, 75-year lease with Raleigh officials before she left office. In 2013, Republican senators demanded the deal be scrapped. The Senate voted to dissolve the city’s lease immediately, saying it didn’t represent the property’s fair-market value and failed to protect health services as the property was originally intended.

City officials threatened to sue if the lease was voided.

By the end of last year’s legislative session, McCrory and House leaders worked out a “standstill” agreement under which the city would hold off on enforcing provisions of the Perdue lease while a new deal was worked out.
