When Kewaunee County’s proposed $23.7-million 2019 budget goes before the Board of Supervisors Tuesday evening it will include a big step forward in expanding broadband internet. County Administrator Scott Feldt is proposing the allocation of $1-million to implement a broadband system that would reach rural customers.
Kewaunee County is currently partnering with Door County Broadband to erect one tower under a $40,000 Public Service Commission grant. Once that tower is erected, Feldt says the county could expand on that partnership for broadband expansion.
