Sibley County Commissioners approved, on Tuesday, paying up to $40,000 to help fund a feasibility study for Fiber to the Home (FTTH) project. The funds come from TIF reimbursement from the City of Gaylord.
Up to $40,000 matching grant money will be provided by the Blandin Foundation. The feasibility study is expected to cost $60,000.
Bernadine Joselyn at the Blandin Foudnation spoke to me about the reasons that Blandin is supporting Sibley’s efforts…
This project is a great example of the importance of local leadership in making good things happen in community. People are any community’s most important asset. Blandin Foundation is privileged to be able to help support the forward-leaning thinking and planning in Sibley County. Money follows vision.
Again according to the Gaylord Hub, Sibley County plans to have a consultant in place to perform the feasibility study by mid-July and will have the study completed by October or November.
