Starwire Technologies: Brad announced that Starwire Technologies will be fined by Polk County for construction of the Lewis tower without having permits and the tower may have to be removed. There was discussion by the board members and all were in favor of Brad discussing and working with the Conservation, Development, Recreation and Education (CDRE) Committee of Polk County to try to get the fines reduced, save the Lewis tower and be able to construct another tower near Clam Falls. Discussion included our residents need for internet service for not only personal and communication use but also for online schooling opportunities, telecommuting needs not currently being met and also possible telemedicine and/or health and safety services not being provided or being properly maintained due to limited or too slow internet services.
