BOONE COUNTY TO HOST
EMERGENCY COMMUNICATION CENTER GROUND BROKEN CELEBRATION

September 17, 2015 - Boone County will host the Emergency Communication Center Ground Broken Celebration on Friday, September 18 at 10:30AM at the ECC Construction Site, located near the Boone County Sheriff’s Department Annex at 2111 County Drive. The event will celebrate the progress made on the construction of the new Boone County Emergency Communication Center, funded by the 3/8 cent sales tax passed by voters in April 2013.

Boone County Commissioners will take this opportunity to recognize the efforts of the members of the Boone County 911/Emergency Management Advisory Board, a Blue Ribbon Panel; the community stakeholders including local law enforcement, fire protection and medical service; and those working on the development of the ECC. The celebration will also be attended by the Columbia Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors.

Limited parking for the event is available in the Boone County Sheriff’s Department Annex parking lot. Secondary parking is available in the gravel lot immediately in front of the Sheriff’s Department main building. Because of limited parking, carpooling is encouraged. The event is rain or shine.
