JOHNS CREEK, Ga. (AP) A public hearing and city council vote are set in an Atlanta suburb, where officials are considering a proposed 400-foot tower for emergency communications. <br />
The Johns Creek City Council is holding the public hearing at 7 p.m. Monday. Council members are scheduled to vote after the hearing. <br />
The tower is being proposed for a site near Johns Creek High School and the St. Ives Country Club. <br />
Residents who object to the tower say it would be the tallest structure in the city just northeast of Atlanta and include a strobe light at the top to warn aircraft in the area. <br />
Johns Creek Mayor Mike Bodker has said the tower is needed to enhance public safety communications. He says the current system isn't working adequately and needs improvement.
