The Allen County Commissioners on Friday agreed to the sixth floor of the former City-County Building, now called the Rousseau Centre, as the best place to put a new 911 call center.The Fort Wayne-Allen County Consolidated Communications Partnership settled on the location this week, but the commissioners must agree to the move because the county owns the Rousseau Centre, 1 E. Main St.

"Though our original offer was to modify the existing dispatch center in the Rousseau Centre basement, we now believe the possibility of a regionalized communications center would require more space than the basement allows," the commissioners said in a statement.

City and county officials hope to have the new call center operational in 2013. The Rousseau Center, which formerly housed local government offices, is now the joint city-county police headquarters. Most government offices moved to Citizens Square, 200 E. Berry St.
