At their last meeting, the Johnson County Commissioners discussed the new Code Red Weather Warning system with County Emergency Management Coordinator Marilyn Connolly.
Connolly told the commissioners that the new weather system must be signed up for separately, that even if someone is already signed up for Code Red notification, they must sign up again for weather notification.

The commissioners also discussed three Homeland Security Grants.

The third grant is for law enforcement to purchase new communications equipment and for training in the amount of $7,062.50.
Deputy County Attorney Barry Crago reviewed the grant agreements and found no issues with them, and the commissioners voted to accept all three grants.
