Broadband RFP Q and A September 15 2022
I understand that the VFD locations do not have any existing towers. Is that correct?
It would be strongly encouraged that sites are visited and geography and connection points are evaluated.
Can I assume that the property at each VFD is being made available by the county as a site for a monopole or tower to use as a basis for service the surrounding community?
The County does not own the property at the VFD’s and agreements between provider and VFD would need to be obtained.
Is it accurate that the county does not plan to offer 911 or public safety towers for use in the plan requested by the RFP?
The County is currently holding meetings with the State in regards to making available vertical assets for Broadband.
Will the selected provider be the purchasing agent and have the ability to provision equipment?
Yes, the County does not desire to become an ISP.
Is ARC funding included in the available funds for this rfp?
What are the total funds available for this rfp?
To be determined by the available match to meet the awarded project.
