NEW LONDON—The Kandiyohi County Board of Commissioners continues to approve grants to broadband expansion projects, using the county’s American Rescue Plan Act allocation.

At Tuesday’s board meeting, the commissioners approved funding up to $185,828 to help pay for broadband upgrades in three neighborhoods located in New London Township and a small piece of Burbank Township.

“The (Kandiyohi County and City of Willmar Economic Development Commission) broadband committee has been working really hard to get broadband across the county,” said County Administrator Larry Kleindl. “The agreement was we were going to use 70 to 75% of our (American Rescue Plan) dollars for broadband if possible. We have been working on that.”
