Spring Hill residents and businesses have consistently expressed a need for better broadband speeds, service, and options. At the November 10 City Council meeting, Mayor Ellis proposed establishing a Broadband Task Force. The City Council approved this request, and seven members were appointed to the new task force at the Jan. 12 Council meeting.
The Broadband Task Force is responsible for examining and evaluating the feasibility of establishing either a public broadband utility or a utility through a public/private partnership. The group will meet at least monthly for a six-month period beginning in January 2017, 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.
Regular meetings are held at 7 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Spring Hill Community Center, 613 S. Race St. Members of the public are welcome to attend.
