The challenge of broadband in rural areas in Door and Kewaunee counties has one municipality looking for a grant to get WIFI in their town hall. The Town of Forestville is seeking state funds to help get the upgrade this year. Town Chair Roy Englebert says the library already has WIFI but getting it for the town hall will be contingent on obtaining a grant.
Englebert says that Forestville had hoped to tap into the fiber optic system that is nearby the town hall but that option was not available. The Town of Forestville building is located in Maplewood.
