Russells Point’s ‘Real-time’ weather update discussion is timely

In light of the recent extreme weather the area has experienced, Russells Point Village Council members entered a timely discussion this week during a regular meeting about a new program offered by Earth Works.

Police Chief Joe Freyhof presented the program commonly known as Weather Bug Weather Station for administrators’ consideration. The village, he said, may purchase a weather bug station that would be placed atop the municipal building and connected to the Weather Bug system.

The program offers “real time” weather available on-line and via a smart phone application to allow residents in the area to receive the most accurate weather conditions updated every five minutes. The projected cost may be as much as $7,000.

Council will explore ways to fund the project and offer the opportunity for other governing bodies and organizations in the area to work together in providing a service to the entire Indian Lake area.
