Fun (and well deserved) news from RS Fiber …
The 10 cities that make up a portion of the RS Fiber Cooperative received the “City of Excellence Award” at the League of Minnesota Cities Conference held recently in St. Paul.
The award, presented June 16, recognized the communities of Brownton, Buffalo Lake, Fairfax, Gaylord, Gibbon, Green Isle, Lafayette, New Auburn, Stewart, and Winthrop for their collaboration in working to bring high-speed broadband Internet to their communities.
According to the League of Minnesota Cities, the award is given in three separate population categories. To be considered for the “City of Excellence Award”, cities must self-nominate a project, program or initiative that was administered to achieve one or more of the following: improvement of the quality of a city service, development of an effective or innovative way to solve an old or common problem, modification of a program from another community or organization to fit city needs, discovery of a way to save the city money without compromising service results, and/or creative involvement of city staff or citizens in making a decision.
