6,000 sq ft of what, a big assed telephone booth if you ask me.
also, "The 6,000 square foot facility will include room for 14 police and fire dispatch consoles where dispatchers will take 911 calls from the public".

Fuck me, there are meth houses in meth town that are 1,200 sq ft and have 14 meth heads living there.

Why does a fucking call taker need 6,000 sq ft.

Meth town mayor wants to yell, hey! look at meth town, we're somebody.

Time for a gun theft sting operation. Leave a gun exposed in a vehicle and make sure you have a fifty caliber rifle ready to go to insure there is no need to waste tax payer money on a trial.
