The Wendell Broadband Committee has scheduled two informational meetings to provide answers to all of the questions residents and voters may have relating to Wired West and broadband Internet. The dates and times are:
Thursday evening April 16 from 7pm to 9:30pm. Jim Drawe of the Wired West Executive Committee will be in attendance. He is the delegate from Cummington and is the Vice-Chair of the Executive Committee and Treasurer of Wired West. He will present a detailed view the financial picture and will be available to answer questions.
Saturday midday April 18 from 10am to 2pm. We expect to have a member of the Wired West Executive Committee in attendance, but we have not yet confirmed who that will be.
At both meetings there will be detailed presentations on what Wired West is all about, the services it will be offering, as well as detailed information about how it will be paid for, including information about the upcoming town meeting bond authorization vote and the debt exclusion ballot vote that will follow. The town's Wired West delegates and members of the Wendell Broadband Committee will be on hand to answer questions about Wired West, its policies, and so on.
Both meetings will be held at the Town Hall, 6 Center Street in Wendell Center. Refreshments will be available.
Robert Heller, secretary of the Wendell Broadband Committee and Wendell's delegate to Wired West.
