State grant awarded to bring more broadband internet to Paris, Brighton, Bristol

A grant that should help bring broadband internet to more of Paris, Brighton and Bristol was announced by the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin Friday.

A grant of $872,171 was awarded to Spectrum Mid-America, LLC for the project, which is expected to bring fiber broadband service to 918 residential locations in Paris, Brighton, and Bristol.

Throughout the state, $99,932,502 for 83 projects was awarded from American Rescue Plan Act funds.

In Paris, the town government earlier this year had approved a study aimed at identifying how to bring high speed internet to the whole town.

That study was not quite finished when the town learned of the opportunity for the grants, said John Holloway, Paris town chairman. The town told the PSC it was willing to participate with Spectrum if their proposal was funded.

“Spectrum’s proposal did not spell out a commitment to provide service to every resident of the town, although Spectrum has indicated that they will make an effort to do so,” Holloway said in an email to westofthei.com. “The Paris Town Board is committed to bringing reliable high speed internet service to our residents. We are prepared to work with Spectrum to facilitate and streamline the process as they move forward on the project.  It is still our goal to make sure that all town residents will have access to the internet service they need.”

The grant includes a match of $2,754,000. Holloway said it is unclear who will contribute to that match, Spectrum or some combination of the municipalities.

“I assume there will be follow up discussions with Spectrum now,” Holloway said.

Local state legislators praised the grant award.

“Our increased dependence on broadband Internet service over the last year and a half has underscored the need for reliable high-speed Internet access throughout Kenosha County,” said state Rep. Samantha Kerkmand (R-Salem Lakes). “Residents and business owners in these communities can now move forward knowing that reliable broadband Internet is on the horizon.” 

Said state Sen. Van Wanggaard: “This is great news. Having broadband access is increasingly necessary today.”

Salem School District board working toward protocol that could invoke mandatory masking with enough active cases

The Salem School District board at a special meeting Wednesday evening approved a new protocol that would invoke mandatory face coverings if a certain number of active COVID-19 cases at the school is reached.

Current policy at Salem School is that masking is voluntary.

But the motion approved in a 4-1 vote (Steve Brown voting against) included inadvertently erroneous language that did not reflect the board majority’s consensus. Therefore the board will try again at a special meeting next week.

“The motion,” said board President Dana Powers in a statement emailed to westofthei.com, “does not match the intent of the board which was to increase each level by one percentage point, rather than 2 percent as the motion suggests. To provide clarification, the board will reconsider the motion wording at the Special Board Meeting next week, Wednesday, October 20, 2021, at 6:00 p.m.”

The Wednesday action also eliminated temperature checks from the protocol.

In September, the administration team had submitted a protocol for consideration that called for specific mitigating actions to be taken if various levels of COVID-19 positives were reached among the school students and staff.

The third or orange level in that proposal called for among other measures:

  • Grades 6-8: Masking is mandatory in the building in all situations where social distancing cannot be maintained (partner activities, small groups, in specials or Advanced Algebra, hallway transitions). When seated at desks and working independently, students may remove their mask.
  • Grades 4K-5: Masking is mandatory.
  • Staff masking would be mandatory.

The fourth or red level calls for mandatory masking in the building under all circumstances.

The original proposal was rejected in a split vote on Sept. 23 and again at the beginning of the special meeting Wednesday.

At the September special meeting, 12 members of the public spoke. Eleven said they opposed mandatory masking. One said they were ambivalent about masking, but would object to mandatory vaccination for COVID 19.

No citizen comment was included on the agenda for Wednesday’s meeting.

Also at the September meeting, results of surveys of school families and staff were presented.

In the family survey, mandatory masking through the end of the semester was supported by 45 percent of the 611 respondents while 25.53 percent did not support mandatory masking regardless of transmission level.

In the staff survey, mandatory masking through the end of the semester was supported by 63.11 percent of the 103 respondents while 9.71 percent did not support mandatory masking regardless of transmission level.

On Wednesday, the board also voted on an indemnification agreement with Kenosha County that would effectively allow the school district to continue to carry out contract tracing and make decisions about quarantining of students and staff. The district’s legal counsel recommended having the agreement in place if those activities were to continue to be done by the school, said district administrator Connie Valenza. That measure passed with Powers voting against.

The indemnification will not go into effect until also approved by Kenosha County.

Honor Plaza flags

The project began 20 years, ago with the purchase of a gravel pit. The land sat on hold for almost 10 years, because of the cost of development. In 2009, a committee determined it should be a park that emphasizing sustainable living, education, and recreation. In 2011 a conceptual plan was created. In 2012, the first master plan was created. At the end of 2012, the County had the opportunity to purchase 113 acres of land immediately adjacent to the west boundary of the park. This made the park a total of 347 acres.

The Veterans Memorial Plan shows the (B) parkway and (C) memorials shelters allowing visitors to explore the park while learning and honoring Kenosha County veterans. The (D) Honor Plaza serves as a trailhead for the multi-use trails and provides space to gather and a place to reflect. (2021 Masterplan)
