Dona Ana County commissioners have selected a site to build new, 18,000-square-foot 911 emergency call center.
Commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to build the center on a plot of land just north of the Dona Ana County Government Center.
Armando Cordero, head of county facilities, says the approval means that design plans for the facility can be finished up entirely. He says the county could only go so far without knowing for certain which site would be selected, but it has finished much of the planning that didn't hinge upon the future building's location.
County spokesman Jess Williams said the location has a number of advantages over the site of the current facility, located downtown.
