Grant aids Door County broadband

Efforts to make Door County more appealing for internet broadband expansion will get a big boost from the federal government.  The Federal Communications Commission awarded a $160-million grant to the state of Wisconsin to improve or expand broadband coverage. Jim Schuessler, Executive Director of the Door County Economic Development Corporation, is not yet certain of how much money will come to Door County.  He believes it will make the area more attractive to broadband providers. However, Schuessler says local governments also need to revise rules and policies, such as restrictions on permissible uses of existing communications towers.




Schuessler says the DCEDC is currently working with several broadband providers about service in Door County.
