Franklin County Dispatch Center walls going up


FARMINGTON — Insulated concrete forms were being installed Wednesday for the new Franklin County dispatch building on County Way.

Dispatchers currently work in a section of the Sheriff’s Department building across from the new center.

General contractor D. Scott Taylor, owner of Taylor Made Homes Inc., said that instead of wood construction, these forms will get filled with concrete and have reinforcement bars throughout to make the walls. It gives them the security commissioners and the Dispatch Building Committee want, and it gives them more insulation than a wood building, he said.

“It’s going well right now,” Taylor said of the project. “Weather permitting, we’ll be setting the roof on top of this next week.”

The Wilton company bid $498,000, the lowest of 15 submitted.

Franklin County residents voted in June 2012 to authorize spending $598,300 for a 2,200-square-foot dispatch center.
