Outagamie County has an outdoor siren system that alerts people to severe weather.
But the county wants to backup that system with more technology.
A repeater system could be installed at the Outagamie County Landfill Facility. The system would be purchased for about $30,000. It would backup the 47 sirens that are controlled by the Binghamton Tower near Black Creek.
The county board approved the emergency management's request for $55,000 Tuesday night.
According to officials, it's important that the project gets completed.
