Monroe County board of commissioners passed a resolution today, to allow the installation of five new sirens throughout Monroe County.
The E.M.A. says rural areas did not have a siren system in place, so it was difficult to warn residents of an incoming storm.
The five new sirens come at a cost of $141,000, and should be installed by June 1st.
The five places getting the sirens are;
High Falls State Park
The Monroe County Recreation Complex
