Dale County’s weather sirens may not be alerting residents much longer.
County officials say they've had problems with the sirens not working during storms.
They've had a difficult time getting them repaired.
Now, Commission Chairman Mark Blankenship wants them taken down.
“I feel like we're at a point where it's more of a liability to have them and someone count on them and it not work. And someone gets killed because they're waiting on it to go off and it doesn't,” said Blankenship.
The newest sirens were installed six years ago, using a grant from FEMA.
The county may be required to reimburse FEMA if they are taken down.
