[ARCHIVED] City seeks applicants for Broadband Task Force


Spring Hill residents and businesses have consistently expressed a need for better broadband speeds, service, and options. As a result of this feedback, City staff and elected officials have reached out to area service providers to either establish new service or improve existing service. While some areas have seen improvements, many areas of the community still report inadequate service.

At the November 10 City Council meeting, Mayor Ellis proposed establishing a Broadband Task Force. The City Council approved this request and the City seeks seven enthusiastic and hard-working residents to join this task force.

The group will be responsible for examining and evaluating the feasibility of establishing either a public broadband utility or a utility through a public/private partnership.
The City is seeking applicants to represent:
- The business community
- Youths
- Seniors
- Telecommuters
- Residents with business, technology, or telecommunications experience
- Residents with a general interest in the topic of broadband services

The group will meet at least monthly for a six-month period, working with City staff and a consultant to explore and evaluate potential options to bring better internet speeds to Spring Hill. At the end of the term, the task force will make a recommendation to the Governing Body.

To apply to serve on the Broadband Task Force, fill out the form below and submit your application to the City Clerk's Office, 401 N. Madison, P.O. Box 424, Spring Hill, KS 66083. Applications must be received by December 30, 2016.
