"Providing Hometown Reliability"
We have started construction in this area. We have pulled in about 5 miles of fiber and have framed poles for the last pull. Getting the last couple easements is taking some time.
We have opened bids for the conduit contractor. We hope to have Board and USDA approval by mid June. If all goes smoothly the contractor should be able to start around the end of August.
We are in the early stages of paperwork for round 2. Hopefully the contractor selection process will go quicker than Grant 1 and we can start construction in 2022. We had a couple of equipment demos and were able to use some of the time to put in a half mile of conduit for Grant 2. We won't be able to do anything with it until Grant 1 is further along.
