About 50 people showed up at a pubic meeting on plans to build a 200 foot tower on the Awbrey Butte Tuesday night. Representatives from ODOT and from the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office answered questions about the tower that will be used for safety and emergency communication. A couple dozen Awbrey Butte residents showed up to ask questions, including Debi Curl: “Another concern was noise aspect from the tower. Neighbors complain they hear a lot of wind noise from the existing towers. They want to know how much more noise would be added.” This tower would be part of the Oregon wireless network the legislature just approved to improve and consolidate radio systems throughout the state.
