The last smidgen of doubt concerning the date of the upcoming fiber optic network referendum has been removed. The bond commission has set the date for July 16th.
Not only was the date set but LUS also received permission to sell its bonds as well. Getting that permission now means that further delaying tactics at the bond commission will not be possible.
Apparently both Cox and BellSouth attorneys were in attendance and presented passionate pleas that were turned down by the Commission.
So the election will indeed be on July 16th. If the project wins, we should all be wired by July 16th, 2008. (Barring, of course, further incumbent delaying tactics.)
