Voters in Clay Banks, Wisconsin have approved a plan to spend up to $2.7 million to bring fiber broadband to every home and business in the town of just over 400 people.
Clay Banks is in Door County, Wisconsin (Door County is a CBAN Community Member) and is considered underserved today. So far the community has not been successful in applying for grants to build out the fiber network. The town vote allows the city to borrow money in addition to continuing to seek grant funds.
The community is working with Bertram Communications to operate the network. Bertram is providing over $800,000 of in-kind support toward the project. Bertram is also working with other communities in the region under the Door County Broadband name.
