New Sylvania Township alert system experiencing difficulties

SYLVANIA, OH (Toledo News Now) - Sylvania Township's new alert system app is having mapping system problems but once it is up and running it will allow Sylvania residents to sign up for the specific alerts they want.

Sylvania Township Trustee Neal Mahoney says people can pick from the different alerts available such as emergency alerts from the police and fire department.

"It's an a la carte where you are able to choose and pick different services that you would like to be text alerted on," said Mahoney. "Again as I indicated, that could be when left pick up is or a particular accident, that might be, that they may want to know of in the township."

Mahoney says the new system should be fixed by Friday.
