The city of Monticello needs 65 percent of voters’ support Tuesday to construct a citywide fiber optic network that would provide Internet, cable and telephone services. You can read all about it on the St Cloud Times Online.
Here’s a little bit of an inside scoop from the August Blandin Foundation eNews:
The City of Monticello has been working on a Fiber to the Premises project over the last year with the goal of creating a City owned enterprise to offer telephone, television and very high speed Internet services. The City Fiber Optics Committee has set a date for a community referendum on the formation of a local telephone exchange that will take place on September 18th. The outcome will be important for determining if the City itself will offer voice services.
