Marinette hopeful for fiber optic funds

The Marinette Finance & Insurance Committee voted Dec. 18, 2018 in favor of earmarking $50,000 of the city budget for the potential purchase of fiber optic cables along University Drive, in the event City Hall moves to the area. Marinette Finance Director Jacqueline Miller explained to the committee on Dec. 18 that the city had the opportunity to earmark up to $50,000 of 2019 capital outlay funds for the purchase of fiber to run from the UW-Green Bay, Marinette campus, to Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC). The $50,000 price tag is about half the cost of the fiber line, the other half of which would be paid for by the university. See more.
