Allen County commissioners approved an agreement Friday with Frontier Communications to extend the county's fiber optic system to the Allen County Juvenile Center, 2929 N. Wells St.
The county's system ends at Coliseum Boulevard and Lima Road, said Ed Steenman, county information technology director. The extension will help to offer fiber optic services to the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo and Foellinger Theatre, he said.
The contract has a one-time installation fee of $53,090. Frontier will then lease the system to the county for $1 a month for 30 years.
