Efforts to bring broadband internet to Charles City continues to be a priority for city officials.
The area was originally slated to have broadband internet by Fall of 2020, but progress was hindered by the pandemic and the money needed to actually do the project. City Administrator Steve Diers says financing options include exploring a partnership with another broadband entity.
Diers says the broadband project could also be eligible for federal assistance.
Diers adds the City is hopeful for the initial phase of the project to start in Spring 2022.
