911 call center gets interim director

Members of the Consolidated Communications Partnership board have appointed a new interim executive director for the joint Fort Wayne-Allen County 911 call center.

The board, which oversees the call center, appointed William Bassett on Tuesday. He will fill in during the search for a new executive director, board president and Fort Wayne Fire Chief Amy Biggs said.

Bassett currently serves as deputy director and oversees the operations of the center, Biggs said.

No adjustments or increases in Bassett’s salary for the interim position were approved.

The executive director’s annual salary is listed as between $70,000 and $90,000 on the county’s website.

The CCP has received several applications from people interested in the position, including Bassett, who said he has applied.

A two-member subcommittee will evaluate the applications and make recommendations; candidates will be interviewed by the board and a final decision should be reached by mid-March, said John Feighner, attorney for the board.
