Hiawatha Broadband Communication (HBC) has been talking to various communtiies about their plan to pursue stilumus funding to expand fiber to those communities with help from federal funds. Last night they spoke with the Red Wing city council who approved a resolution (7-0) to support HBC when it applies to the federal agencies that will distribute stimulus dollars allocated for fiber-optic projects.
Red Wing is excited at the prospect of having fiber – especially as a tool to encourage businesses to move to the area.
Lake City also approved the plan. HBC also plans to talk to Cannon Falls.
