E-911 center begins office renovation

Bartholomew County’s 911 Emergency Operations Center is renovating its offices, the first major physical change in 17 years.

During the first two weeks of August, workers will transform the center’s current conference room into two offices — one for director Todd Noblitt and the other for deputy director Julie Pierce, Noblitt said.

The final two weeks of the month will be be spent renovating current office space into the new conference room, he said.

The objective is to provide an enlarged conference room suitable for representatives of all branches of government and public safety agencies to meet during emergencies, Noblitt said.

No tax dollars will be involved in the upcoming project.
