At last months quorum court meeting, the justices asked about Entergy’s presence in the community, and their storm emergency reaction. Entergy’s Tandee White attended Monday’s meeting, to answer their questions.
The engines belong to a sister company of Arkansas Midland; Dallas, Garland, & Northeastern, based out of Texas. Both are subsidiaries of Genesee Wyoming Railroad.
Simce we’ve spent so much of this week covering water, rain, and flooding; we might as well close the week out with these 2 unusual videos.
The videos include Thursday night’s broken water main, by a fire hudrant, shooting water into the middle of HWY 278 West. The other shows a flooded sewer drain on East Shelton Street, pushing water up, through a manhole cover.
Teams from the Arkansas Department of Correction’s Construction and Maintenance Division are on scene leading damage assessments at the Delta Regional Unit.
The City Council approved Mayor Zack Tucker’s plan to begin reducing the city’s ongoing battle against residential flooding.
In response to many resident’s questions, The sirens will be tested weekly (silently), and audibly tested monthly or quarterly.
The Monticello City Council met Tuesday evening, and discussed locations of the weather warnig sirens, passed a resolution authorizing the use of city property for the placement of weather warning sirens, and approved money to pay for the City’s Code Red weather warning system.
In the next step of the ongoing weather warning saga between Code Red electronic notification and the traditional tornado warning sirens on towers, a discussion meeting was held at Western Sizzlin at noon on Monday, with Judge Robert Akin and the Drew County JP’s, who invited Monticello Mayor Allen Maxwell and other city officials he chose to include.
Due to technical difficulties, the video from the Quorum Court meeting is unavailabe.
The screens below, however, provide the audio from the meeting.
After several years of attempting to get governmental assistance to help fund tornado sirens for Drew County, we’ve finally got funding to assist with the purchase of 27 tower sirens, which will be scattered around the county.
But as the years have passed by, many feel that the towers have been surpassed by digital technology, as the best way to go, to notify county residents of impending disanter, should it occur.
