Cornell City Council; Get ready for faster data

MORE THE MERRIER –– Bill Arneson and Deb Stonkey share a laugh with the Cornell City Council March 2, after the board agreed to temporarily close South Second Street July 22, for a wedding reception for Arneson’s daughter. Members agreed it would be a good safety issue to have the street closed by Arneson’s house and the rented American Legion Hall, and said the council’s only problem was that members weren’t invited for the celebration.

If plans go through, Cornell citizens will have access to high-speed, high-connectivity data. At the regular Cornell City Council meeting, city administrator Dave DeJongh informed the board of a Wisconsin Technology Networking LLC proposal for a new 120-foot tower in Cornell.

The tower would be built at no cost to the city, and if constructed on city property, a rental fee would be paid to the city.

“He (Wisconsin Technology Networking LLC representative) said as things go to 5G,” said DeJongh, “this type of thing is going to be more and more prevalent to get people the data on their smart phones and iPads.”
