Select Board member Andrew Hogeland on Monday gave his colleagues an update on the research of a working group of volunteers who have been looking at solutions to provide high-speed internet access in the rural town of 7,700.
The working group looking to bring fiber optic broadband to the Village Beautiful is nearing the point where it can broaden the conversation.
But it is not quite at the point of having a finished proposal to present to residents.
Municipal broadband systems have been taking hold in Western Massachusetts recently. The community-owned internet service is eyed to bolster speeds and decrease pricing in areas that are underserved by the utility companies.
The Board of Selectmen on Monday voted to recommend the town approve the expansion of the Mount Greylock Regional School District to include its two feeder elementary schools.
In concurrent Tuesday special town meetings in Lanesborough and Williamstown, voters in the two towns will be asked to approve the current junior-senior high school district to include the elementary schools in each town.
