This system depends on everyone signing up their phone number, name and address.
This information is to alert the public in only the areas of the county that is affected.
You can sign up by calling 502-484-3405 for the Owen County Judge-executive’s office or going on line at owencounty.ky.gov.

This also covers severe weather notifications such as the ice storm and snow levels.  This notification system is for every resident in Owen County
All residents should be “storm ready” for possible electrical outages, loss of water, slick roads which can delay vital services to residents and colder temperatures.
