News : Despite Delays, 911 Call Center Expected to Open Next Month
Las Cruces, NM, USA, Nov 19, 2015 -- ABC-7 received an update on Dona Ana County's 911 call center. The center is months behind schedule and costing tax payers a lot of money, according to the county manager.
Delay after delay is why County Manager Julia Brown says the call center has taken so long to open. The 6-million dollar project will house the Mesilla Valley Regional Dispatch Authority. But Brown says those delays threaten to add significantly more to the cost.
The building is up, but it stands in a dirt lot surrounded by cones and debris. The project is now about five months behind schedule. Its expected to finally open next month. Now, Brown says the county's looking to recover its losses.
"We had hoped that things were moving smoothly enough and working well enough that if there was a delay it would be a very short one and so we're disappointed in that regard," Brown said. "We are doing what we think is necessary in order to follow the paper trail and to find out who is responsible for it."
Brown wouldn't specify the nature of the county's losses. ABC-7 reached out to the architect and the contractor for the project but have not heard back.
