Emergency Telephone System Board

This System will be used in the event of an emergency within Macon County. Alerts will be sent out with
potentially lifesaving messages regarding critical events such as chemical leaks, active shooter situations,
etc. This information will be sent to residents who have signed up online and to any resident who uses a
landline telephone. If you only use a cell phone, you will not receive these critical notifications unless
you sign up online.
Alerts for significant weather events are also among the notifications residents may sign up for.
Villages are able to send Village Alerts to anyone who signs up for alerts such as, but not limited to, boil
orders, road closures or construction, and winter weather closures. The villages offering these alerts
are: Forsyth, Harristown, Long Creek, Maroa, Mt. Zion, Oreana, and Warrensburg.
There are several ways to receive an alert: Text, phone call, email, TTY/TTD, or using the Everbridge app
found in the App Store.
If you are already signed up for the Macon County Emergency Alert & Notification System, please log in
to verify your contact information is up to date.
If you haven’t signed up, please do so by visiting one of the websites listed below. Once on the page,

Community Involvement

Want to be more involved in your Community?? Here are a couple suggestions:
The Warrensburg Fire Department is looking for volunteers. If interested, contact any member of the department for information or stop by the Fire House any Thursday evening.

Attend a Village Board of Trustees meeting to learn what is happening in the Village and discover if you can be an active participant in making a difference in this community. Meetings are the 1st & 3rd Mondays at 5:30 p.m.

The Primary Election will be held on February 28, 2023 and the Consolidated Election will be on April 4, 2023. There will be 3 trustee terms up for election or re-election. Watch the Village Newsletter; Facebook

2 persons are needed for the zoning board committee. This committee meets on an “as needed” basis whenever building or remodeling within the Village doesn’t meet the zoning code and an exception or variance is requested.
