Broadband survey gets backing

The Ellsworth Industrial Council's survey of internet users in Pierce County received backing from many organizations and individuals. Among the major supporters were the Pierce County Board, Pierce County Economic Development Corporation, the Ellsworth Area Chamber of Commerce/the industrial council, Pierce Pepin Cooperative Services and the Ellsworth Creamery. The survey now supplies potential broadband providers with the information necessary to help bring high speed internet service to all corners of the county. On the courthouse steps are several representatives of the many who have contributed the survey. From left to right, they are: Heather Hines and Paul Schwebach of the Pierce County EDC, Sharon Seibel of the industrial council and Jeff Olson, representing Pierce Pepin Cooperative Services.
