The "State Radio Project," a program that consolidates state radio systems for better communication during an emergency, is going back to the drawing board.  The project that would place a 200-foot tower on Awbrey Butte is going back to the drawing board.

 

Deschutes County Sheriff Captain Erik Utter says when they first started working on the project, a lot of concerns from local residents were raised - that were not previously taken into consideration.  "I think for us, and for the citizens here, I think it's good that it got shelved. We’re going to step back and trying to do some things carefully, cautiously, and with objective input that will help us identify really, how we should best move forward as a county and just as one single agency, as we move forward to try to address our needs."

 

Utter says they will eventually have to build the tower somewhere; but they will do a lot more research and assessment of what their exact needs are and how to keep interference with residents at a minimum.
