OGDEN — After eight years of studies, negotiations and meetings, the Weber Area Dispatch 911 and Emergency Services will get a new building and remodel its space at its current location, county and city officials said.
Weber County Commission gave its approval on Tuesday, Aug. 2, to a resolution authorizing the Weber Area Dispatch 911 and Emergency Services District to create a local building authority, said Pleasant View City Mayor Toby Mileski.
Mileski is also the chairman of Weber Area 911 and Emergency Services District Board.
By creating a local building authority, the Weber area dispatch board will be able to bond to pay for a new building and the remodel of the current space at 2186 Lincoln Ave., Mileski said.
The new addition and the remodel of the current space will cost about $5 million, Mileski said.
Groundbreaking for the two-story 8,600-square-foot addition to Ogden’s Francom Public Safety Buildingis expected to happen the first part of October, said Tina Mathieu, executive director of the Weber Area Dispatch 911 and Emergency Services District.
Wadman Corporation will do the construction of the addition, and the new center is expected to be completed by late spring of 2017, she said.
After the new addition is built, Mathieu said, the 911 center and employees will move in and Wadman employees will gut the existing 3,300 square feet of the current center and remodel it. The remodeling work is expected to be completed by midsummer.
