What is the Umatilla Morrow Radio & Data District?
The Umatilla Morrow Radio & Data District is a Special District formed through a House Bill and Levy to acquire, maintain, and upgrade the voice and data communication system used by local, state, and federal agencies that include police, fire, and medical service within Umatilla and Morrow Counties and the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation. The boundaries of the city of Milton-Freewater are not supported.
For more information on the District, view the History section on our “About” page.

Why is the city of Milton-Freewater not included?
At the time that the District was formed, this jurisdiction elected not to be included and therefore does not receive communication support and does not contribute tax dollars for the district.
