APPLETON, Wis. (AP) - Several Outagamie County officials could be disciplined or even fired for failing to sound emergency sirens in advance of last week's violent storms.
A Post-Crescent Media report says the county's public safety committee met in closed session Friday for about 90 minutes.
The committee emerged to recommend that Emergency Management Director Julie Loeffelholz be disciplined or fired for not sounding the alarm. Loeffelholz declined to comment.
The Aug. 7 storm knocked out power to about 60,000 customers, leveled a church in New London and took down trees and traffic signals across northeast Wisconsin.
The committee also found fault with the sheriff's department for failing to maintain the county's main public safety communication tower in Black Creek. The sheriff did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
