UTOPIA: The next step

Macquarie Capital recently held a public meeting for all cities involved with UTOPIA to present the Macquarie Network PPP (Public/Private Partnership) Milestone One proposal. City Manager Shawn Warnke attended and said he felt Macquarie’s plan could change the city’s current position.

Tremonton has $5M invested into the UTOPIA network, with 95 percent of the fiber construction complete. All that’s left is a connection to homes, but the problem is the $3,000 connection fee.

“That’s a huge barrier for people to connect,” said Warnke. “I think this (the proposal) will solve a lot of the issues and difficulties we are facing.”

Find out what the company is proposing and how it will affect residents.  The story is in this week’s Leader.
