Memorandum Of Understanding Approved For Co-Location

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Local government co-location received a "yes" vote Friday, despite the concerns of one Allen County official about how much money the city of Fort Wayne will commit to the plan.

The two government entities will share space in the Renaissance Square Building, and in the City-County Building.

City and ounty police will occupy much of that facility.

The county commissioners approved certain ground rules for the co-location.

Commissioner Bill Brown didn't like the fact the agreement specified that the city will seek to contribute one-million dollars for CCB renovations.

Brown says, “I, I really thought it could have said, the city will provide the million dollars. It's the mayor signing, and we know full well that the mayor cannot do anything without the approval of council, but council has basically blessed the million dollars, so, it seemed like an easy change."

The re-arrangement of offices due to co-location will start to take shape by this time next year.
