The Halifax Selectboard is in search of new members for the Broadband Committee.
Over the past five years committee members have assisted in acquiring the grants
which brought fiber optics to the Halifax school, established the WiFi hot spot
at the Town Garage, and set up the town web site. They have also expanded their
focus to include cellular coverage and economic development.
The current committee members are now retiring; if the Broadband Committee
is to remain active new volunteers are needed.
If you have an interest in seeing the Committee continue, and would be
willing to serve, please contact any Selectboard member, or call/email
Robbin Gabriel, 802-368-2590; email@example.com.
