After extensive vetting and negotiation, including a public outreach process, potential partners for the publicly-owned Click! Network have been narrowed to two candidates, Wave Broadband and Rainier Connect.
CTC consultant, Jo Anne Hovis, will present how each of the two final contenders align with the 12 policy goals adopted by the Board and City Council for a public-private partnership. These 12 goals were prioritized through stakeholder collaboratives conducted by the Center for Dialog and Resolution (CDR).
Each potential partner has worked with Click! Network and consultant CTC Telecom and Energy (CTC) to develop term sheets. These term sheets will be evaluated for their alignment with the 12 adopted policy goals for any public-private partnership.
