The next time Meridian and Lauderdale County have a weather emergency, or any other kind of major emergency, both governments will apparently work closely together.
The two entities have agreed in principle to have a joint Emergency Operations Center at the old Bellsouth building on 14th Street in Meridian.
The building is owned by the county, but it has invited the city to use one half of it, free of charge, during the next emergency.
A wall will be placed in the middle of the building to give the two entities some privacy.
