An ad hoc committee has drafted some proposals to eliminate outdated tower rules to expand broadband internet service in Door County. The Door County Economic Development Corporation ad hoc committee on broadband is made up of DCEDC members, technology experts from broadband providers and county officials. Among the proposals are eliminating rules that currently prevent more than one user on existing communication towers. DCEDC Executive Director Jim Schuessler says another proposal addresses whether federal approval is needed before other towers could be built.
The DCEDC ad hoc committee's recommendations must now go before the Door County Board of Supervisors for review and possible approval.
