CLALLAM COUNTY – The effort to expand access to broadband internet throughout Clallam County continues to move forward this week with public meetings hosted by the City of Port Angeles and Central Clallam County on Wednesday and the City of Sequim on Thursday.
Both meetings will be from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and can be accessed via the web and by phone.
A grant from the state Community Economic Revitalization Board (CERB), along with matching funds from Port of Port Angeles with Clallam County, Port Angeles, Sequim and Forks are funding the county-wide broadband planning and feasibility study, expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
