JOHNS CREEK, Ga. (AP) Residents of an Atlanta suburb are objecting to a proposed 400-foot tower that would be built to enhance emergency communications. <br />
The tower is being proposed for a site in Johns Creek, near the St. Ives Country Club and Johns Creek High School. <br />
Johns Creek residents say plans for the tower include a strobe light at the top to warn aircraft in the area. They say that if it's built, it would be the tallest structure in the city just northeast of Atlanta. <br />
Johns Creek Mayor Mike Bodker tells WSB-TV that officials are still evaluating all options for enhancing public safety communications. The mayor says the current system is not working adequately and needs improvement. <br />
The Johns Creek City Council was scheduled to discuss the tower at a Monday meeting. <br />
