Champaign County residents should be receiving information in the mail in the next few days about signing up for the CodeRed Weather alerts. The tornado sirens were decommissioned as of December 31, 2012 and will no longer be used. Who thinks it is wrong that we had no say in this. Will you speak out to try to save them?

You refuse to lift the bond so a cell tower can be put here where I live so how am I to get a text? In severe storms do you honestly think I am stupid enough to turn on my computer to check email? Not only are you putting all home-owners, renters at risk but our children as well which as a mother makes me ticks off to the point of no return. I think the citizens of this county should of had a say in the matter after all don't we have rights? Don't our opinions matter? You seem to think so when we pay our property taxes, when it benefits you guys. So is this money saved by decommissioning our tornado sirens going to a good use, like I don't know fixing the crappy, cruddy, god-awful streets of Saint Paris? Or do we not get a say in that either? I think this plan was not thought through at all, I think it was a spur of the moment decision based on greed and greed alone, and it was a stupid decision. I say, personally, turn our sirens back on and give us our sense of safety and security back!
Erin N Sarka, United States2 years ago Comments: Really? that is the dumbest decision ever made. You're really going to risk the lives of innocent people? What are you going to do about people who dont have cell phones or internet? if there is a tornado how you going to get the message acrossed if cell towers are knocked down? two words: stupid idea!
