- Stan Moore, Chief Information Officer shared that they are continuing to make progress on the conceptual design that will lead towards putting projects together to get in the ground and moving on infrastructure. Mr. Moore provided information on the series of broadband workshops that the state is putting on beginning in our area next Tuesday in Tuolumne County. During the workshops they will look at the other things that we need to be doing in order to get the most value out of broadband, how we are going to take care of our populations that perhaps don’t have the right equipment, how we can get people trained and be working at that planning process at the same time that we’re working on the infrastructure. Each one of these planning workshops is geared towards developing a series of potential strategies.
