Board weighs wireless option

The journey to better Internet in Kewaunee County begins on Tuesday when the board discusses partnering with a Hilbert-based broadband company. In the resolution to be discussed by the board, Kewaunee County would partner with Bug Tussel Wireless to obtain broadband expansion grants offered by the state’s Public Service Commission. The firm was chosen from a group of five companies based on its proposal to meet the needs of the county and the track record of its community partnerships. Kewaunee County Board Chairperson Robert Weidner says they may have to loan a substantial amount of money to be paid back over time to get the ball rolling in the right direction.

Two other items slated for discussion during Tuesday’s 5:30 p.m. meeting have been taken off the agenda for now due to time constraints. Weidner says resolutions regarding Kewaunee County’s inclusion in a proposed National Marine Sanctuary in Lake Michigan and action on the area’s manure storage and spreading emergency will appear in future meetings.
