Up to $1 million could be allocated to improve Kewaunee County’s broadband Internet infrastructure if it is approved by the board next month. The county’s finance committee will take up the discussion during its meeting Friday before giving a recommendation to the board of supervisors. Kewaunee County has talked to partners to make the project happen and hopes to add to the $40,000 in grant dollars it has already received from the state. Kewaunee County Board chairperson Robert Weidner says a final cost for the expansion has not been determined due to a number of factors.
Funding for the Kewaunee County Economic Development Corporation will also be discussed at the finance committee meeting this Friday at 8 a.m. at the administration center in Kewaunee before getting final approval from the board on Monday.
