Jefferson City emergency sirens may be delayed

March 30th, 2012 in News

One of the city's older sirens eyed for replacement.

Jefferson City's recently approved emergency siren upgrades may be delayed after two vendors have appealed the selection of Meyer Electric to provide the sirens.

At the Public Safety Committee meeting Thursday, Capt. Robert Cynova said two vendors have appealed the decision to award the contract to the Jefferson City-based company, which was approved March 19. Cynova said the vendors want to know why they weren't selected and the appeal process will slow the siren upgrades, possibly delaying the project for up to 30 days.
