Thanks to John Shepard for sending me an article on Windom’s plan for stimulus fudning. Actually it looks like it’s Windom, Jackson, Lakefield, Round Lake and other area communities. Folks from those communities recently met with Congressman Tim Walz to talk about the possibilities of pursuing federal funding for a fiber network.
I know that Windom has been looking at expanding fiber to surrounding communities. I know that sadly Jackson was not interested (at least with their own money). There is a city council meeting in Red Wing on Monday to discuss the option.
