Romulus, Mich. -

Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano unveiled a new high-tech Command Center Monday in Romulus.

The new center utilizes COMPASS technology, designed to make Wayne County Roads Division's response to weather events top notch.

"This system is one of the first of its kind in metro Detroit and the United States," said Ficano.

The Command Center, which cost approximately $222,000, will utilize road crew data and track snow-clearing data in real time.
