APPLETON - A top member of the Outagamie County Emergency Management team has stepped down.
County officials say Steve Hansel has resigned as Emergency Management's deputy director.
Hansel's last day was July 25th.
The county says the move has nothing to do with the recent criticism over how the county handled this month's severe storms.
Some members of the county board are suggesting Emergency Management officials be disciplined for not activating the sirens during the storm.
The storms, which included tornadoes, did more than $30 million in damage in Outagamie County.
However, Emergency Management officials say the National Weather Service never issued a tornado warning, and they never received a credible sighting of a tornado.
Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson wants an independent investigation into the county's response to the storms.
