GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - Grand Island’s Fire Station 1 and a former Nebraska National Guard armory are two of several locations under consideration for a new 911 center.

The Grand Island Independent (https://bit.ly/1RySlDr ) reports the City Council is scheduled to meet Tuesday to consider awarding a $20,500 contract to Omaha architects to study possible 911 center locations and estimated costs.

Local emergency management director Jon Roselund says the architects will try to find at least four options. Each suggested location will have two price options, one for use as an alternate 911 center and one for a full-scale facility.

Roselund said locations that are near the city’s fiber optic corridor and are already owned by the city or the county take priority.
