Barron County’s Board of Supervisors is in “full support” of a move by Cameron-based Mosaic Technologies to use federal money to hook up a hundred square miles of the county to high-speed fiber optic Internet service.

A resolution passed by the board Monday, Jan. 17, 2022, at Barron, supports Mosaic’s bid for a USDA Rural Development Reconnect Grant, which could be used with other possible grant money from the American Rescue Plan Act, the Wisconsin Public Service Commission, and the company’s own resources.
