Town Board Meeting

December 18, 2017



Chairperson Pagel called the meeting to order at 7 pm. All board members were in attendance along with 11 others.



Josh Werner from Waupaca Online spoke regarding bringing broadband to underserved areas in Caledonia. Waupaca Online is a fixed wireless internet solution that’s been operating in the City of Waupaca and surrounding areas for 15 years. To start the process, Waupaca Online is looking for areas in the town where internet is most lacking along with people who have tall silos, buildings, or towers where a piece of equipment could be installed. The town board will continue to work with Waupaca Online.

A resident complained about the attention and money that’s been put into ditching around the roads. Supervisor Abba explained why ditches are critical to road maintenance.
