APPLETON (WKOW) -- Several officials in Outagamie County could be fired for not sounding emergency sirens ahead of last week's tornadoes.
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 August 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.
