Broadband details requested by County Board

Chisago County is moving forward on developing a set of numbers and cost estimates on an individual  township and city basis; to get better projections on construction and other details necessary for applying for broadband assistance.  The pre-engineering work will be funded using American Recovery Act Program funds, the County Board recently agreed.
 
The request for the funding was presented to the County Board June 15 in response to interest expressed at a recent county workshop on enhancements to local Internet.  Multiple townships said they want to learn more and have some help seeking out broadband monies available.

The County Board agreed it could schedule another workshop in 90 days or so, when the technical information needed has been submitted by Hometown Fiber.  

Coming out of this phase of the contract, areas of construction will be defined, networks designed, maps of fiber routes provided and materials cost estimates are  in the work plan.

There will be information on grants available (some for rural areas and others for denser populations) anticipated income from networks and a host of other useful data for local governments.

County staff will be in contact with townships and cities who have been participating in the broadband workshops when the second workshop is set.
