Kenny Anderson met with the council regarding the siren. It had been approved that once the new siren was installed the alarms would be run off of it. It was later decided to continue to use the existing siren. He asked the council to consider removing a couple of times that it rings. Currently the old siren rings at 7:00 a.m., 12 noon, 1:00 p.m., 9:00 p.m. The new siren rings at 6:00 p.m. There will be another discussion at the next council meeting after seeing how this month goes with the current setup.
