CLINTONVILLE - Hundreds of Clintonville residents gathered in the high school's auditorium Wednesday night. They were hoping city leaders would know what is the source of mysterious booming sounds that have shook the area since Sunday.
"The city team of both staff and elected officials are working to do all that we can to solve the mystery," said Clintonville City Administrator Lisa Kuss.
Kuss gave a short presentation to residents. She talked about the where the sounds have been reported, and what has been ruled out as a cause. That includes the city's water and gas lines, military activity and possible mining. However, Kuss could not say what was the cause.
When the presentation was finished, residents were able to ask questions. One person asked if the city needed to be evacuated. Kuss responded by saying, " we do not feel it is necessary at this point, but we certainly would tell you if we did."
Some residents told FOX 11 the meeting calmed some of their concerns. Fawn Limberg said, "I actually feel a little better, but I was hoping they were doing more research and work."
Kuss says the city has hired an engineering company from Waukesha to help pinpoint the cause of the sounds. The company will set up four monitors around the city to triangulate the source. Kuss said the project could cost the city up to $7,000.
