He added that after the five years the city looked to possibly gain from the equipment if the city chose to be an Internet Service Provider.

“This will link together providers of vital public sector commercial services with private sector non-profit entities for the first time in these struggling regions of Florida,” he said. “At this time, only 39 percent of the FRBA region has broadband service.”

He said that at the end of the build out period, FRBA's project would deliver up to 1,000 times the existing capacity within the area.

“This is going to create jobs, enhance public safety, improve delivery of healthcare services, enhance emergency services, promote educational opportunities and so much more,” said Brook. “And with the expansion of technological need and even schools converting from physical books to digital it is vastly needed in this area. I feel that Bonifay doesn’t want to be conspicuous in staying out of this endeavor.”

The council approved of the five-year lease pending approval from Taylor.

Council member Roger Brooks stated that the city of Bonifay has a “cat problem.”

“We’ve got a serious cat problem and I ask are we just going to keep ignoring it?” asked Brooks.
