02/16/10 77 W - + 4 - 11 Discussing the Public Safety Center

While we digest today's reports of the latest city council discussions on Raleigh's proposed public safety center, some supplementary reading is presented below. These are City Council meeting minutes, as posted on the city's web site. The first heated discussions about the project started in December. Page numbers are indicated, to help with finding.  

So, from the PD side, anyone who works in the current building will tell you it is painful (almost) to work there. All the power outlets are in the form of “tombstones” sticking up out of the middle of the floor. The elevators break and get stuck on a regular basis. You can be extremely cold on one floor, and extremely hot on another. Twelve people are working out of an office made for two people. Some people are working out of closets. There is no hot water in the building. (Correct… THERE IS NO HOT WATER.) If the new building is never built, at least our people have been moved out to other locations.

All the news articles talk about the “17-story building for cops”. They rarely mention the fire or ECC side of it. How will my fire and 911 counterparts (you guys) be affected if this building never comes to be? Are you fine with staying in your current facilities?
