There could soon be new tornado sirens in three Todd County communities, if a federal grant application is approved.
Emergency Management Director Tim Pulley asked fiscal court to be the pass through agent for a potential grant at Friday morning’s meeting, which they agreed to do.
The sirens would cost Elkton and Trenton $2,000 each in matching funds and $4,000 to Guthrie because they want two.
Pulley explained the county’s strategy in where to reach the most people with the sirens.
In other business, court approved final reading of the 6.6 million dollar budget for the upcoming fiscal year and final reading of the administrative code changes that reduce vacation and sick time accrual for county employees in exchange for a pay raise.
County Attorney Mac Johns said the county will start considering its tax rates to fund the budget later this summer, with Judge Executive Darryl Greenfield already on the record as saying he supports keeping the rates where they are.
