On February 3, there will be a special mail-in municipal election asking the question of Estes Park voters if the Town should regain the right to participate in broadband services within the Light and Power District. The right was removed by Colorado Senate Bill 152, passed in 2005.
At our January 21 Meeting at 7:00 PM in the Hondius Room at the Estes Valley Library. EPICUG will discuss the pros and cons of this proposal. The meeting will feature a presentation by David Batey with the Estes Park Competitive Broadband Initiative in favor of the question. Mr. Batey’s presentation will include printed handouts for you to keep and refer to. He has also provided many of the following links for reference.
Please join us next Wednesday to discuss this important issue. All EPICUG meetings and events are free and open to the public. If you have any questions or suggestion for programs in 2015, please let us know – simply reply to this e-mail.
