A public informational meeting on plans to build a tower on Awbrey Butte was held Tuesday night. The Deschutes County Sheriff's Department, the Oregon Department of Transportation and the Awbrey Butte Neighborhood Association are getting together. ODOT will lead the discussion on why the tower is needed to improve public safety and emergency response communications throughout Central Oregon. Some residents on the Butte have concerns about the tower and the meeting will be an opportunity for them to ask questions. This is just the beginning of the process to put a 200 foot tall tower replace one that currently serves such organizations and Bend Police and Fire.
