The Bourbon County Emergency Management purchased the electronic sign from Garland Fire Department for $1,200.

“After several months of discussion and deliberation Shane (Walker, Bourbon County Information Technology Director)and I decided to purchase it and use it to display messages to the public such as CodeRed signups, red flag fire warning days, weather warnings such as ice storms, snowstorms, etc.,” Wallis said in an earlier story.
No county money was used to purchase or have it installed, Wallis said in the previous story, grant money was used.
