City Seeks Applicants for Community-Wide Fiber Ad-Hoc Committee


     During the City Council Meeting on June 5, Council voted to establish an Ad-Hoc Committee and is seeking applicants. Council has been exploring the idea of providing City-owned and operated high-speed fiber-optic internet service to Hudson residents. The issue was originally being considered for the November 2018 ballot, but Council decided to push back that timetable and create an Ad-Hoc Committee to bring additional information to City Council before it would decide if an issue would be placed on the May 2019 ballot.

     The Ad-Hoc Committee will consist of five to seven members who will review the issue of the City establishing a fiber-optic network to provide high-speed internet service community-wide. The Committee will be charged with:

  • Reviewing the current high-speed community-wide plan developed by the City.
  • Reviewing funding options for a City-provided community-wide network.
  • Reviewing the capability of the City to provide and maintain a reliable and well-serviced community-wide internet network.
  • Reviewing and investigating options for a community-wide high-speed internet service through means other than a City-owned and operated network.
  • Making recommendations to City Council through a written report to be issued by October 2, 2018.

     City Council is seeking applicants with a variety of backgrounds and expertise, including but not limited to technology, accounting and business.

     Interested applicants should apply by emailing their interest, along with a resume or bio, to Elizabeth Slagle, Clerk of Council, by June 15. Contact the Clerk of Council at 330-342-1795 with questions
