Town of Milton Awarded WASB 2020 Business Honor Roll Award

At its October 21st Board Meeting, the Cochrane-Fountain City School Board honored the Town of Milton with a Wisconsin Association of School Board’s 2020 Business Honor Roll Award. The honor roll program recognizes local school district business partners that support their local schools by providing resources or additional learning opportunities for students and staff. The school board provided the following information in support of its request to have the Town of Milton receive the award:
“The Town of Milton, through grants and a partnership with Cochrane Co-Op Telephone, has played an essential role in bringing broadband internet access not only to the C-FC schools but to the families within the township. Free public wi-fi is available in the parking lot of the Town of Milton Town Hall. The Wisconsin Routes to Recovery Grant provided federal funding to every Wisconsin town, village, city, county or recognized Indian tribe to use on COVID-related expenses. The Town of Milton Board voted to use their remaining funds to purchase disposable food distribution products (to-go containers, plasticware, etc.) for C-FC’s Food Service Program. This purchase should provide the supplies needed to package food for C-FC’s food service program for the entire year.”

Town of Milton Receives Broadband Forward Community Certification

Town of Milton, Buffalo County has been certified as a Broadband Forward community by the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin which distinguishes the township as supportive of increased broadband access by taking steps to reduce obstacles for private and public investment.

Governor Scott Walker signed The Broadband Forward! Community certification bill into law as 2015 Act 287.

“Town of Milton, Buffalo County is a great example of a rural Wisconsin community working hard to ensure their community is connected,” said Governor Scott Walker.  “It’s an important stepping stone into further broadband expansion and economic development.”

“Expanding broadband is critical to Town of Milton, Buffalo County and we need to take all the steps we can to reduce the hurdles for deployment of additional infrastructure,” said (insert name of municipal leader).  “Our Broadband Forward certification sends the signal that we’re serious about working with broadband providers to extend service.”

“The State Broadband Office at the Public Service Commission stands ready to serve as a resource to communities and providers looking to maximize broadband infrastructure investments in Wisconsin—with the goal of bringing broadband service to every corner of our state,” Walker said.

To assist in the expansion of broadband in Wisconsin, Governor Walker created the Broadband Expansion Grant Program in the 2011-2013 biennial budget.  In 2015, Governor Walker and the Legislature tripled the amount of funding for broadband expansion grants to $1.5 million annually; with a total of $6 million allocated from the Universal Service Fund cash reserves, to fund grants over a 4-year period.  “Our current budget allocates a historic $35.5 million in additional spending for broadband expansion efforts via the expansion grant program and TEACH grants,” said Walker.

“In addition to these significant and flexible public-private grants, a six-year, $570 million federal program is providing funding to expand rural broadband access in Wisconsin,” said Walker.  “Any improvement in the speed and efficiency of these investments, such as that provided by the Broadband Forward! Community Program, will make a significant difference in Wisconsin.”
