The Town of Jacksonport is joining Door County Broadband's application for state grant money for broadband internet service. The town board approved spending $75,000 as part of the company's grant application. Door County Broadband will contribute $90,000 to that effort. The state grant would then match those funds. Town of Jacksonport Chair Randy Halstead says that money would pay for three broadband towers. He says only one would be put up initially to determine where the other towers would be placed.
Halstead says once the agreement to partner with Door County Broadband was approved those attending the special town board meeting applauded the decision.
