WOODBINE — A new outdoor warning siren will be installed in the near future in Woodbine.
And more than 75 percent of the project cost will covered by two grants.
The Woodbine City Council, at their monthly meeting December 21, awarded the bid to Federal Signal Safety and Security Systems, of University Park, Ill., for $24,115.
Currently, there are two warning sirens in town.
One is near the cemetery and the other is located on county highway F32, also known by locals as “airport road.”
Both, according to City Administrator Amber Nelson, are at least 60 years old and were purchased used from another town in Iowa.
The one on F32 is still in okay condition.
But the other one has been sent away several times to be worked on, according to Nelson.
