Dexter Township Board has approved the hiring of a company to conduct a feasibility study for building a fiber-to-the-home network. The feasibility study that the Dexter Township Board has approved will provide in-depth information regarding the estimated costs and revenues associated with building a fiber-to-the-home network in Dexter Township. Based on the results of this study, Dexter Township and the Michigan Broadband Cooperative will pursue funding options to build the network, which may include private investors, grants, municipal bonding and a millage initiative.
The Dexter Township Board recently passed a resolution to support the Michigan Broadband Cooperative in their efforts to bring broadband to our rural communities. Support from the township board is essential as we move forward to secure additional community support and funding for this effort. We have already had several Dexter Township residents join our group!
