The Board of Directors recognized a major infrastructure deficiency was the lack of modern and reliable fiber optics which is as important as water, electricity, sewer and natural gas.
Current goals and projects include:
· Addition of rural broadband amplifiers
· Installation of fiber optics networks (primary and back-up) and Campus data center ($900,000 project)
· Baldwin County Expanding potential scope to include loop from CSH to Downtown to Northside County Annex to County Jail (on boundary of Industrial Park)
CSHLRA would essentially become a broadband utility operator
