Lucas Broadband Project - Update
Due to concerns raised by citizens about the lack of adequate and reliable internet service, the City has completed the broadband feasibility study which includes a conceptual fiber network design. The purpose of the study is to determine if it is feasible for the City to implement and operate a sustainable broadband network to provide internet service to Lucas residents within city limits. If the Lucas Broadband Project is approved by the voters in November, this project will operate on a subscription basis giving citizens the option to sign up for this internet service.
