I stumbled across an announcement from Google. The company is looking for communities in which to deploy trial runs of a new, extroardinarily-fast fiber optic internet network. Although our community’s odds of winning are a probably a longshot, it never hurts to try. A project like this not only would provide the best internet service available, but would also be a strong attraction for businesses, and I imagine would create some jobs. Best of all, this project does not seem to require any significant expense on the part of the Village.
So go here to nominate our community for this project! And get others to do the same. Google stops accepting nominations by March 26th.
