The Wyoming Broadband Advisory Council will talk about ways to form public-private partnerships to launch new broadband enhancement projects during their public meeting at 8 a.m. on May 17 at 900 E. Sunset Drive in Riverton.

The Broadband Council is appointed by the Wyoming Business Council, the state's economic development agency, and is tasked with ensuring every citizen and business in Wyoming has access to affordable, reliable, redundant and future-proof broadband.

Broadband Council members will also consider additional organizations and advocates who can help advance broadband enhancement efforts. U.S. Department of Agriculture representatives will educate members on the ReConnect Loan and Grant Program and Connect America Fund, two funding opportunities for broadband projects.

For more information, email Russ Elliott, broadband manager for the Wyoming Business Council, at russ.elliott@wyo.gov.
