Heated Talks in Drew County Over Several New Tornado Siren Towers

The county is set to get more than two dozen new towers to warn residents about severe weather.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - "What did you tell Channel 4, what did you tell Channel 4," you can hear Mayor Allen Maxwell ask.

We first told you about this story two weeks ago, the county is set to get more than two dozen new towers to warn residents about severe weather.

They tell us most of the money to pay for the new system is coming from a government grant, but there is quite the argument between the mayor of Monticello and the county judge about who will be footing the rest of the bill.

"They are expecting us to come pay for your towers, that's why you changed it to a per capita basis," says Maxwell.

"I do want you to help pay for the towers, do not think any other way," says Judge Robert Akin.

According to Akin this issue should be resolved at next Monday's quorum court meeting.
