If you do not but want to be alerted when there is severe weather or some other kind of emergency in your area of the county, you can do so by going to the county's website at www.montgomerycounty.ky.gov and clicking on the link under Emergency Notification. You only give your name, address and the phone number you want added to the call list. (cell phone, etc.)

It normally takes between 7 and 10 days to get results back on your soil samples so don't delay, take your soil samples today. Info on taking Soil Samples.
