WILTON, Conn. – Wilton residents will have their say next month on whether the town should spend $1.5 million on a town-wide data network.
The Board of Selectmen voted unanimously Monday to approve a resolution to appropriate money to build the network, as well as to issue $1.5 million in bonds to pay for it.
Town residents will vote on it at a town meeting at 7:30 p.m. March 12 at the Clune Center at Wilton High School.
According to an information technology risk assessment developed by town consultant BlumShapiro, Wilton needs to create an environment for the town government, Wilton Public Schools and the Wilton Library that will allow each entity and the community to operate in the event of a disaster, as well as for information to be stored securely at all times.
