Corinth to add storm sirens

By The Associated Press

CORINTH — Corinth’s expanded storm siren coverage is expected to be in place in the next couple of months.

The Board of Aldermen this week approved a bid that was received during the summer for the installation of five new sirens.

David Huwe, director of community development and planning for the city, tells the Daily Corinthian he is hopeful the sirens will be installed before the onset of tornado season.

Federal Signal was the low bidder at a total price of $90,606.

The city has $90,716 for the project through a Mississippi Emergency Management Agency hazard mitigation grant, including a 14 percent local match.
