Town of Elmore joins Lamoille FiberNet CUD
“Lamoille FiberNet Communications Union District is growing! The town of Elmore has recently joined Lamoille FiberNet CUD which also includes Wolcott, Morrisville, Hyde Park, Stowe, Eden, Johnson, Waterville, Cambridge and Belvidere. Lamoille FiberNet is working in partnership with NW Fiberworx CUD to bring high-speed, symmetrical fiber internet to the unserved and underserved residents in our area. “I’m pleased that Town of Elmore will be part of the Lamoille FiberNet CUD going forward. This partnership provides for a dynamic opportunity to bring fiber services to the community”, said Brian Evans-Mongeon, Elmore’s Representative to the CUD.
Lamoille FiberNet is currently conducting financial modeling work and high-level design and hopes to break ground this summer on projects to bring broadband to its member towns, thanks in part to a 1.2 million grant they received from the Vermont Community Broadband Fund. The funds will go a long way in allowing the CUD to file the necessary applications and complete pre-construction planning and engineering, according to Val Davis, executive director of Lamoille FiberNet. Costs covered include financial modeling, high-level design, pole studies and the pole applications which are required to be able to attach fiber to the utility poles in Lamoille FiberNet’s service area.
The mission of Lamoille FiberNet Communications Union District is to make locally controlled, affordable and reliable high-speed internet service available to every address in our member towns – Belvidere, Cambridge, Eden, Elmore, Hyde Park, Johnson, Morristown, Stowe, Waterville and Wolcott — as soon as possible.
