A group of neighbors from across the town formed a coalition to attempt to bring high speed internet to the Town of Clifton. We are making an appeal to the Town to help us. We contacted Baldwin-Lightstream (formerly Baldwin-Telecom) and presented a preliminary proposal to them. If the official proposal that we hope to present to them is accepted and grants secured, they will bring fiber optic cable to the entire township.
In order to ensure our efforts are successful, we need your help...
The coalition and a group of neighbors packed the town hall at the board meeting on May 2. The town board needed more information from us in order to make a motion to support our appeal.
We will again be asking for the town's help and support at the town board meeting on June 6 at 7:00 p.m. The official presentation to Baldwin-Lightstream will include residents' answers to a survey that we hope to send out to all residents. In order to move our effort forward, we are asking that the town fund the mailings and officially support our effort.
We are asking for your support by attending the June 6 meeting. If you haven’t already sent an e-mail to the clerk/treasurer, Judy Clement-Lee, at firstname.lastname@example.org asking that the town support our effort, do so. Specific examples of your issues now with poor Internet service would be great but if you want to leave a one sentence e-mail, that would be fine too. Copy us at email@example.com so that we can bring the list to the Town Board meeting and keep you updated. The e-mails that we presented at the meeting really helped them understand how vital this issue is to residents and businesses across the town. Flood her e-mail with requests, forward this e-mail to your friends and neighbors. When you are talking with your neighbors, make sure they remember to send an e-mail.
Your support of this effort is vital to our success in obtaining the grants. We have the support of our legislators and major businesses. Now it's up to us.
If you have any questions or would like to join the coalition, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
