Public meetings dates changed

The informational meeting and special town meeting on broadband internet that originally were set for Tuesday, July 12, and Friday, July 15, respectively, have been rescheduled. The broadband informational meeting will now be held Tuesday, July 19, and the town meeting will be held Thursday, July 21, both at 6 p.m. at the library, 2789 Route 3.

As a reminder, the Southwest Waldo County Broadband Coalition (swwaldobroadband.org/) has been exploring ways to bring broadband internet to Palermo and other local communities. The next step is for the Palermo Select Board to enter into an interlocal agreement with other municipalities for the purpose of creating the Waldo Broadband Corp., which could then create a broadband utility district.
