Wayne County is ready to open its new 911 and Emergency Operations Center. The ribbon was cut for the new A. Joe Gurley, III Emergency Services Building Tuesday morning.
Gurley served the citizens of Wayne County as the District 4 Commissioner since July of 2014. He was appointed to serve as the chairman of the county board from December of 2018 through December of 2019. Gurley passed away this May. His family was on-hand for Tuesday’s ribbon cutting ceremony.
At the onset of construction, the new 12,000 square foot emergency services building was budgeted to cost over $5 million to build. The new facility is located at 1520 Clingman Street in Goldsboro. It is expected to officially go into operation in mid-January.
