Supervisor’s Corner

September has really snuck up on us.  So has fall.  What a tremendous August as far as weather and our growing season.  Much needed after our wet, late spring.  But lets move right on to the good news.  I haven’t had internet service for a few weeks so I didn’t get to update anything in August.  You may have seen people with white cars and amber lights running around  with ten foot sticks and cameras searching out electric and phone poles.  They are doing the necessary work for pole asessments to  see what has to be done to string the fiber optic wire that SLIC Networks is installing so Hebron finally gets “high-speed” internet. When speaking with the people measuring the poles they assured me that SLIC was cracking the whip to make sure they did their part as soon as possible.  They also informed me that the wire usually was going on the poles six months after they came through.  Seeing is believing, but just seeing some actual action on their part makes me real optimistic that by 2021 Hebron will be caught up with the rest of the world with our internet capabilities.  This is something I have been working on since I took office and with the help of the Governor it is finally coming to fruition.  This is the best news and it can’t come soon enough.  I believe from here on in we will see a lot more activity in our Town as this fiber optic line is getting installed.  We still have to be patient, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
