High-Speed Internet Plan Remains Secret
Cumberland Municipal Council is still keeping the lid on any discussion of its initiative to expand high-speed internet throughout the county.
Council discussed their plan last night, but once again behind closed doors.
When the matter came up on the agenda of the public meeting, council passed a motion to proceed and to keep the matter confidential until all partners are on board with the plan, and even then, they will only go on record if all partners agree.
The idea of enhancing internet service in the rural parts of the county first arose with a proposed partnership with Colchester County. Since then, council has refused to elaborate.
The two counties approached Develop Nova Scotia, the provincial body responsible for building high-speed internet in rural Nova Scotia. It remains a secret whether Develop Nova Scotia accepted the local effort as part of its multi-million dollar plan.
