From comments at the board meeting, the board is not pursuing this opportunity to apply for the funds available throughthis major USDA rural initiative. We heard a mumble from one member tasked with looking into this ,saying something about contacting Spectrum, but nothing of substance seemed to be done by him. Perhaps too many voters actually want rural broadband this time.
