Wright County is now conducting a survey of all residents to learn how Broadband services are working in your area. We highly encourage all to do this short survey which could improve all access to broadband in a more cost effective method in the Rural areas. Here is their announcement the link for the survey follows.
As I’m sure you’re well aware, COVID-19 has been a stark illustration of the disparity in broadband capabilities in different cities and townships, Wright County and throughout the state. The Wright County Board of Commissioners has committed millions in American Rescue Plan (ARP) funding to improve and enhance the fiber grid in Wright County. The county is going to be applying for state and federal grant dollars to help make this project as robust as possible. A critical component of that is to gather as much data as we can to make informed decisions and let the state and federal grant agencies know we have a plan in place with buy-in from our cities, townships, businesses and school districts. To that end, the county has contracted with Design Nine, a firm that specializes in broadband synergy for communities like ours. Design Nine has developed an online survey to assist in the information-gathering process and the commissioners felt it would be of great benefit to partner with our cities and townships to get the word out to residents of your communities that this survey is available to complete online. projects.designnine.com/survey/wright-residential

Thoroughly Modern Millie
OK, ok, not Millie, but Mary Raymond is an example of one of our Election Roster Judges during the a township election. What is significant here is the 'Poll Pad', a new device implemented county wide to update, track, and access voter registration data. No more pencils, except for the actual ballots. The township election is held every year on the second Tuesday in March.
What does the township spend money on?
one word: roads. See below.
2014 was a tough year for Middleville farmers, what with the record rains throughout the spring preventing planting. Shown above are some of Dennis Terning's equipment working the fields in November, just West of County Road 7 SW and North of Highway 12.
