Town of Franklin Supervisor Art Wilman and Harrietstown Supervisor Bob Bevilacqua are reaching out to property owners in their Towns and asking them to to take part in a brief survey evaluating internet service over the next month. FranklinCounty legislator Barb Rice says
“The goal of the survey is to collect data to support a business plan for the expansion and enhancement of broadband service into rural, underserved areas.” She continues by saying “Communities that demonstrate a need may be eligible for grants and or low interest loans. And Participants in the survey will be eligible to win a round trip ticket on CapeAir for taking part in the survey and providing information.”
The information will be analyzed by students from PaulSmithsCollege and a report will be presented to each town.
“The real world experience the students derive from working on a collaborative project of this nature is rewarding and valuable from both a community and educational perspective” said Dr. Diane Litynski, Director Business Management & Entrepreneurship at PaulSmithsCollege.
