This session in focused on the Towns of Ulysses and Enfield, but residents from throughout the county are invited and encouraged to attend.
The Committee, charged with advising the Legislature on “how to best promote broadband technology countywide, to address the needs of unserved and underserved residents, foster public-private innovation, enhance existing capabilities, and support good governance,” has been working on the issue for over a year, and handed up its initial recommendations to the Legislature in January.
Copies of the Committee’s report will be available at the meeting, and may be reviewed online at the Legislature’s web site at
The Community Engagement Forums are coordinated by the Broadband Committee’s Education, Awareness, and Marketing Subcommittee. To date, the Committee has held four prior sessions around the county. Another forum will take place Wednesday, May 9 at the Newfield Town Hall (focus: Enfield/Newfield).
