Charles City, Iowa – The fiber to home project still has many questions the city is still working to answer.

City Administrator Steve Diers says the fiber engineering mapping study has been completed.


The proposed city-wide utility needs a central location.  City hall does not have the space to be its home.

Diers says the location would house the staff and equipment.


Another question is how and when does  a governing board come into the process.

Voters passed the initiative in 2005 and they also voted for a separate board for the utility.

He says they’re finding answers for a telecommunications board to help oversee and administer the duties for the project.
