IN LIGHT OF April’s tornados, Madison County is moving forward now rather than later to get all of the tornado sirens it needs.
Twenty-two more sirens are needed, for a total of 25 in unincorporated parts of the county. It will probably take at least six months to get them all installed, said Purchasing Clerk Hardy Crunk.
“The plan was to request $100,000 a year [for emergency management] to get five sirens a year. That would have taken us about three additional fiscal years above the present year to cover the county,” Crunk said.
