Mayor of Country Club Hills doesn’t like the new threat level system
by Sam Hudzik Apr. 26, 2011
A south suburb of Chicago plans to take down signs that alert residents to the current terrorism threat level. That’s after the feds announced they were scrapping the color-coded system.
It may seem a bit out of place driving through Country Club Hills to see big signs reading “Homeland Security Advisory System.”
“I think there’s five ratings, and you fly a flag above it corresponding with the rating,” said Dwight Welch, mayor of County Club Hills, which is about 25 miles south of Chicago’s downtown.
