The Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska is facing a deadline to remove an old bank building from its current location.

Ho-Chunk Inc., the tribe's economic development corporation, bought the former Liberty National Bank building for $7,500 last month, The Sioux City Journal reported. Plans call for it to be removed and relocated to the reservation, about 20 miles away.

But the logistics have proven to be difficult so the corporation needs more time to consider its options, an executive told the paper. The deadline to remove is Saturday.

Ho-Chunk Inc. owns Indianz.Com.
