Sheriff Bryan Murphy, flanked by fellow first responders, came before the Allen County Commission Tuesday morning to inquire about the status of a proposed communications tower in the southeast corner of the county.

The tower will help police officers and firefighters to radio one another and respond to emergencies, especially around Elsmore, Savonburg and Humboldt.

Residents in these areas would also benefit from the proposed tower, as it can hold two commercial antennae with the power to enable better cell phone connections and internet data.
