Free Wi-Fi

On May 6, 2014, the City Council authorized the wind down of the City’s Free Wi-Fi Network, effective June 30, 2014. In lieu of the current and outdated Free Wi-Fi Network, City Council has directed staff to implement a pilot Wi-Fi hotspot in a strategically placed location. Given the rapidly changing Wi-Fi technology and manner in which people utilize the Internet, the implementation of a future City hotspot pilot program will allow the City to determine how to best serve its residents, businesses and visitors.
