Bay City School Board Approves Contract For More Fiber Optic Cable Service

Bay City school board trustees approved a contract Monday for more fiber optic cable service to district buildings.
Superintendent Stephen Bigelow says the extra cable will provide redundancy to avoid a repeat of a situation that occurred earlier this year when a truck took down a cable line. That left some parts of the district without Internet access for two days.
Bigelow says the district’s share of the project will amount to 20 % of the cost or $70,000 with the upgrade to happen over the summer.
