I’m furious about the city allowing Verizon to build a 4g tower next to the elementary. This is something the people should vote on. The city is putting business before its voters and should be fired

Speculation about harmful towers, electrical plants and even cell phones at your head have been around for decades. If not harmful, speculation about such things would have been put to rest long ago.

I know they are bad for health. Several peer reviewed studies show it. Not 'believe' it's bad; I know. You can tell when you camp next to one. Don't believe me? Try it. Don't want to? Why not? lol

I don't know how these parents can worry about these towers when they all have a cell phone glued to their ear all the time, AND they let their children have them too.

Cell towers use microwaves(used in microwaves) and radio waves(used in radios)which have a longer wavelength than visible light(basically anything you can see)and short wavelengths are more dangerous

No more then the sun. The protesters wasn't doing anything to protect their children from the sun.

According to the ACS, they are most likely safe. https://www.cancer.org/cancer/cancer-causes/radiation-exposure/cellular-phone-towers.html

Quite frankly there are other things that have an actual impact on your health like drinking soda and exercising that you should be more concerned about.

Agree. It's easier to focus on arbitrary things like cell towers than actually have to look at real things that control your health, like diet and exercise!

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.

Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.
