Lamoille FiberNet’s third annual meeting and new board members

On May 9, 2023, the Lamoille FiberNet governing board met for its third annual meeting. Board members elected Waterville representative Jeff Tilton as chair, Wolcott’s representative Andrew Ross as vice chair, and re-appointed Mark Schilling as treasurer and Lisa Birmingham as clerk.

Four new members were welcomed:

  • Cambridge Alternate Representative: Matt McCabe
  • Johnson Alternate Representative: Jeff Bickford
  • Waterville Alternate Representative: Scott Johnson
  • Wolcott Alternate Representative: Bradley Horstman

Each member town’s Selectboard may send one representative and two alternates to serve on the Lamoille FiberNet board. Current representatives are listed on the CUD’s website at Alternates are needed for Belvidere, Eden, Elmore, Johnson, and Stowe — if you are interested, please contact your Selectboard, or your town’s Lamoille FiberNet representative, or email

The annual meeting minutes are posted on the website at:, and they feature discussion of federal ARPA funds pledged by some member towns to support the buildout of Lamoille FiberNet’s fiber network. These pledged funds can be matched 1:1 by the Vermont Community Broadband Board’s local ARPA Match Program. All local ARPA funds will be invested in the sponsoring community to support construction, and in some cases, nonstandard installation — or drop — costs.

The board also discussed the progress with contracting an Internet Service Provider. Keep an eye out for more announcements about our partnerships and the CUD’s plans to construct, operate and maintain fiber infrastructure in Lamoille County.

Lamoille FiberNet’s mission is to bring fiber-based internet to every unserved and underserved address in Lamoille County, thus realizing our long-term vision that every home and business in our territory — Belvidere, Cambridge, Eden, Elmore, Hyde Park, Johnson, Morristown, Stowe, Waterville and Wolcott — is connected to fast, reliable internet service. Its mission is to prioritize access to unserved and underserved addresses to symmetrical, high-speed Internet. Serving community, not profit.
