The debate over a new radio tower continues in Cumru Township.

A special meeting was held Thursday night about a proposed radio tower site for the Berks County Department of Emergency Services.

Officials say the county has received a list of concerns from the township over the proposed site off of Welsh Road.

In response, the planning commission reviewed plans to put the 300 foot-tall tower at the Mohnton Fish and Game instead.

A vote to approve the new plan is scheduled for later this month.
