Carrboro Town Manager David Andrews will present the recommended budget for Fiscal Year 2014-2015 at tonight’s meeting of the Board of Aldermen.
The Board will then set the time for a public hearing on the proposed budget, and well as budget work sessions.
Also on tonight’s agenda: Alderpersons will receive an overview on the North Carolina Next Generation Master Network Development Agreement with AT&T, for the installation of ultra-high-speed broadband network and internet access.
It’s an effort to promote more economic opportunities, and to address the digital divide.
Carrboro has joined other municipalities, including Chapel Hill and Durham, as well as four major universities including UNC, to evaluate proposals from network providers.
That resulted in the development agreement that will be discussed tonight.
On a similar note, there will also be an update on Google Fiber, an initiative to build high-speed networks in 34 municipalities. Carrboro is part of a designated region for the project.
The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. at Carrboro Town Hall, located at 301 West Main Street.
