VACAVILLE - Solano County officials will dedicate a tract of land today in eastern Vacaville as a future home of a government center named after a longtime mayor and supervisor.

The William J. Carroll Government Center is planned for a plot of land near the intersection of Brown Street and East Monte Vista Avenue that was purchased by Solano County.

The county said in a statement that he was chosen because "for 33 years, William Carroll dedicated all of his energy to the city of Vacaville and Solano County . . . (and) worked tirelessly for all citizens."

The county does not have a specific design for the building but once completed it is expected to consolidate the existing Vacaville offices of the Department of Health and Social Services and provide additional space.

Carroll died three years ago and has already been honored once by the city, which named its downtown plaza after him.

The dedication ceremony will take place today at 10 a.m. and will be attended by the city's two current county leaders, Supervisor Mike Reagan and Board of Supervisors Chairman John Vasquez.
