FiberNet Monticello may build communications tower

FiberNet Monticello is interested in the financial potential of building and leasing a communications tower and using it as a tool to generate additional revenue.
General Manager Mark Pultusker presented the idea Monday night as part of a comprehensive telecommunications and broadband service and system update.
Monticello City Council members approved spending $2,500 to complete a Phase 1 environmental study that would give FiberNet the flexibility to fast track any project once it moves from a tentative proposal to an outright committed project. “We are still working with ways to increase revenue,” Pultusker told the city council.
