Posted: Monday, January 25th, 2010 at 6:27 am

The City of Pella is researching the potential for a municipal telecommunications utility in the community. The idea has been proposed by members of the City Council, as well as members of the community, and would include television, phone and internet service via fiber optics. Pella City Administrator Mike Nardini says the benefit of a municipal telecommunications utility would be the push to have Pella at the technology forefront and provide residents with improved service, but additional research will be conducted to determine if the idea would be logistically and financially feasible.
