Law enforcement and emergency responders now have improved radio signals thanks to a new communications tower in Grover.

The existing tower, which was 40 years old needed costly repairs. Therefore, a new tower was constructed and is now fully operational.

Weld County worked with federal agencies and the Pawnee Nation and Cheyenne Nation Indian Tribes on this project as the tower is located near an archeological site. The agencies determined that no environmental damage would occur by building the new stand-alone tower, which is anchored by three legs in the ground, at the existing radio tower site. Construction began in October 2019.

"We built this tower to strengthen and enhance our public safety communications for first responders and residents,” Weld County Director of Public Safety Communications Mike Wallace said. “After working extensively with multiple agencies to ensure this tower was constructed, we’re glad to see this important project come to fruition.”

The project is set to complete in April of this year with the removal of the old tower.
