Pima County just bought a bowling alley.

The county just agreed to pay almost three million dollars for Golden Pin Lanes on Miracle Mile.  

The county's not interested in strikes and spares. It plans to turn the place into a center for services like adult probation, juvenile court, and the health department.

Supervisor Ally Miller questioned the cost and Supervisor Richard Elias snapped back.

Miller: "There's never money for roads but we can always find money for these types of things that we decide, and I always call them the shiny object."

Elias: "We've heard it from you time and time and time again.  Anytime we try to do anything of any purpose Supervisor Miller attacks the county as being dishonest and Mr Huckelberry as being a villain in the whole thing."

The county says buying the building is cheaper in the long run--  than space the county's leasing now.

The agreement with the county allows Golden Pin Lanes to remain in the property and continue to operate for up to one year after the sale closes.

Golden Pin Lanes is located at 1010 W. Miracle Mile Road.
