"Providing Hometown Reliability"
We have started construction in this area. We have pulled in about 3 miles of fiber and have framed poles for another pull. There are a few things slowing the process down:
We are working with USDA to get final approval for some bid documents to select a contractor to install conduit. We have submitted a second draft to USDA to look at. We hope we are close to the end of this process. Once the documents are approved, it will take about 6 weeks for potential contractors to respond and for us to select the best response. USDA will have to approve the contract before construction can begin.
We are in the early stages of paperwork for round 2. Hopefully the contractor selection process will go quicker than round 1 and we can start construction in late 2021.
