Roane County’s proposed emergency management budget for the 2010-11 fiscal year is $592,355.
In contrast, Loudon County, which has two interstates crisscrossing it, has an emergency management budget for the 2010-11 fiscal year that’s less than half that.
“The data is going to tell you if you need to look further into something,” county executive candidate Ron Woody said. “What the data tells me is we need to look closer at our emergency management.”
