Not in my frontyard: SLT siren to be moved

Marie Havenga • Jul 21, 2015 at 11:13 AM

The siren, one of 75 in Ottawa County, has been in its current location at 18710 Mohican Drive for almost a decade. It will be moved about 300 feet to the west.

The township will foot the $3,500 relocation bill.

The siren is in the frontyard of Marianne Rogers — who, along with some other North Holiday Hills neighbors, has voiced opposition to the siren location at Township Board meetings over the years.

The siren will be moved this fall to a county drain easement at the end of Mohican Drive, on the west side of the township. The property is owned by North Holiday Hills resident Stephen Hentschel, who has a Sioux Drive address.

Rogers said she’s delighted the siren will be finding a new home — she just wishes it were farther from its present location.

Township Manager Gordon Gallagher said in case of emergency, the public warning device needs to be in a location where the public can hear it. There are about 180 households in North Holiday Hills, according to Gallagher.
