The townwide fiber network project is back on track, after the committee charged with reviewing and clarifying the plan voted to recommend it to the Board of Selectmen at a meeting last night. Three out of five members of the townwide network committee voted for the recommendation after a meeting and public hearing. Voting yes were: Sandy Dennies, the town's chief financial officer; Jim Saxe, a member of the Board of Selectmen; and Janice Hess of Wilton Library's board of trustees. Laura Schwemm, a member of the Board of Education abstained, along with Al Alper, Board of Finance member.
Mr. Saxe also added the caveat that he wants the project, which would link the library, town and school facilities with an underground fiber network, to cost less than $1 million, over the course of three years.
