Two resolutions passed by the Kewaunee County Board on Tuesday could pave the way for more people getting better access to broadband Internet. The board approved leasing a portion of one of its towers to Door County Broadband for future subscribers. The county will be compensated based on new customers. The board also approved paying $40,000 for their portion of a grant with hopes of constructing a new tower in the Lincoln area. Kewaunee County Board Chairperson Robert Weidner is happy both resolutions were approved.
Tuesday’s board meeting also featured a public hearing for the 2020 budget. Members of the public spoke against the elimination of two county positions, but the board will have its last say next month when it votes on a final draft of the budget.
