Commission hopes to net $4 million for broadband

One of the actions at last Friday’s Braxton County Commission could bring as much as $4 million to the county for broadband expansion. During the meeting Larry Clifton made a motion to pledge $1 million of the county’s allotted (ARP) American Recovery Plan funds to the West Virginia Department of Economic Development’s GigReady Incentive Grant Program.
