Use money for storm sirens

Tuesday, August 24, 2004

To the editor:

I have a perfect solution for the surplus hotel and restaurant tax money, something that would benefit the whole town, not just a chosen few. We desperately need a storm-warning system in this city. Most other towns have them, even ones smaller than Cape Girardeau. If you are fortunate enough to live near the university, it has an excellent system, but the rest of the town has nothing. This could save many lives in the event of a major storm. Please, mayor and city council, give this some serious thought.
