MADISON, AR - The city council of the Saint Francis County town of Madison wants to get some weather-warning sirens. The council has approved an application for a $15,000 federal grant to purchase the sirens.
Mayor James Brooks said that, if obtained, the money would be used to pay for two telephone or radio-operated sirens...one for city hall and the other on the far side of town. He said the two sirens would be all that is needed to cover the city.
