MMEU Board Approves RFP for Community Broadband Feasibility Study

At its January 18, 2017 Meeting the Maquoketa Municipal Electric Utility Board of Trustees unanimously approved SmartSource Consulting to draft an RFP [Request For Proposal] for a Full Feasibility Study that includes a preliminary design, cost estimate, and business plan for launching a Telecommunications Utility.

The Board was encouraged by the positive feedback from the previously conducted Community Broadband Engagement and Education Project that determined there is sufficient community interest in a municipal broadband project to justify investing in a detailed feasibility study.
