Conway MO receives grant for new storm siren

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Debbie DiFonzo - United Country VIP Realty, SW Missouri

Ezard Elementary in Conway, MOLast 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.

Debbie, I can see were it was far cheaper to relocate the old siren as Brentwood has had to purchase 2 new ones at a cost of $25-35K each.

James - I have sent you an email. Thanks for asking -

Michael- Wow, not cheap! Now I know why Conway applied for a grant. The town has a populaton of a  700 +/-. They did mention a figure of $2500 just to relocate!

Carole-  I am glad the new Mayor thought to move the siren vs. selling it or otherwise recyling. The school is a much needed place for a siren even though we hope not to use it too much!
