The One to Count On...

Washington Safety Center becomes Comm Center

Posted: Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009 at 5:13 am

The Washington County Safety Center is expanding, and getting a new name…sort of. Right now the emergency communications department is the only agency occupying the old sheriff's building, and there using only a fraction of the space. The board of supervisors yesterday approved allowing them to utilize other parts of the building and changing the name to the communications center. Supervisors say they are between a rock and a hard place because it seems wasteful to not use the space, but would cost too much to renovate. They also say it is too risky to interrupt 911 service with any major renovations.
