VILNIUS - The Vilnius City Council has voted in favor of selling their headquarters in a bid to raise more money for the budget.

Mayor Vilius Navickas said it is necessary to sell the building to raise money and that he hopes the process could be completed within about 6 months. He said the city would be sure to keep a buy-back option on the site.

Vilnius, Lithuania's capital and this year's European Capital of Culture, has about 760 million litas in debt.
