The Speaker Series Breakfast Briefings on the first Tuesday of the month, from 7:45 - 9:15 am; breakfast will be served, and our speaker will educate (and entertain) us.
November 5, 2019 topic:
Residents of Eagle have made it known loud and clear that they desire more reliable, faster, and cheaper internet. The internet and broadband service is a dependency for public safety, emergency services, local business, and for a quality of life on par with other communities in the valley and across Colorado. Since internet service is at the mercy of private company investment and service offerings, the Town of Eagle has responded to resident feedback and chosen to participate in Northwest Colorado Council of Governments'Project THOR to better facilitate and incentive public/ private partnerships, increase broadband availability, and to provide additional opportunities for service that are currently unavailable. Uptown Services have been contracted to conduct a feasibility study designed to fully assess the broadband needs for the Town of Eagle, with financial analysis and implementation plans. Uptown Services and Bill Shrum, Assistant to the Town Manager, will update us on progress and solicit feedback.
