Last night, the Mayor of the City of Conway appeared before the Laclede County R-1 School Board at their regularly scheduled meeting for the month of July.
One point of business before the school board: moving the existing Conway storm siren.
The City of Conway recently applied for and received a grant to purchase a new storm siren.
The existing siren is located in downtown Conway while the school sits on the Northern fringe of town.
The City offered to move the old, existing siren to school property with the City paying the cost of relocating the siren. The District was asked to approve the addition of the siren. They were also asked to sign a utility easement allowing Laclede Electric to place an additional pole on district property.
A motion was made reflecting the request of the City and the motion passed 7 - 0.
