Waupun Tornado Siren Upgrade

The City of Waupun will be upgrading its tornado siren system. Fire Department officials have been calling for the upgrade saying the system needs it because they have to pay too much for repairs to keep the system running. During the past week the Waupun Common Council awarded a contract for the upgrade to a new battery operated system, which would keep the sirens running during a power outage. The bid was $66,000 for the project.
