MORRIS – The city of Morris has partnered with Walgreens Corporate's Safety Division and the local Walgreens store to distribute Midland Weather Alert radios to residents that live within the city limits of Morris.

The radios will be offered at a discount price of $10 and available only by bringing in your water bill on specified dates, according to a news release from the city.

Water bills for the next three months will have instructions printed on them with the dates to pick up your radio. For those receiving their bill in June, pick up dates are June 18 and 19, for July billings the dates are July 16 and 17, and August billings the dates are Aug. 13 and 14. Pick-up times are from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Community Room at the Morris Municipal Services Facility, 700 N. Division St., Morris.

Residents must present their water bill stub that has the information about the radios printed on it in order to purchase a radio – no exceptions. Any other water bill stubs will not be accepted. Only one radio per water bill will be available, according to the release.

There will be representatives on hand from Midland and Walgreens that will assist in programming the radios if desired. The Morris Emergency Management Agency encourages all residents and businesses to purchase and use NOAA All Hazard Weather Alert radios.
