Utility Services Contractors recently began installing a high-speed fiber network to support the Town’s public safety efforts and critical administrative activities. CTC Technology & Energy is managing the $2.5 million installation which will initially interconnect 14 Town facilities before expanding to serve businesses and residential neighborhoods. 

Extending from town hall, the current fiber network installation is the next step in implementing the CTC report. Residents can track the progress of the fiber installation by visiting the Town’s website at
