Without more funding, nearly 100,000 Maine households will soon lose a federal internet subsidy

Without more funding, nearly 100,000 Maine households will soon lose a federal internet subsidy 

Nearly 100,000 Mainers are expected to lose a federal internet subsidy beginning next month.

For the past three years, the Affordable Connectivity Program has provided at least $30 a month to millions of low-income households across the U.S.. But due to a lack of continued funding from Congress, the last full subsidy was issued in April, with only a potential partial discount available for some customers in May.

Planning Board Meeting - March 27, 2024

 

MINUTES OF THE REGULAR MEETING OF THE VIENNA

PLANNING BOARD HELD  MARCH 27, 2024

At 6:40 PM Regular members Waine Whittier, Creston Gaither, Ed Lawless, and Tim Bickford met with Renee Rhoads on her Kimball Pond Road site depicted on Tax Map 10 as Lot 77 to discuss her proposal to place a shed on the parcel. 

At 7:00 PM said members and Ms. Rhoads convened the Board’s regular meeting at the Town House. Minutes of the February 28 meeting were read and accepted.

The Rhoads proposal was then considered. FEMA’s Floodplain Map Panel 115D was reviewed but was not clear as to whether the proposed shed would lie in the floodplain. Creston had taken a GPS shot on the shed’s proposed location during the site visit. He will place this on a floodplain GIS layer FEMA has provided the Town and see if this question can be resolved. The application was temporarily set aside.

Waine has received a call from one Josh Chase regarding trees that blew down during a recent storm near Flying Pond. Waine advised him that no Town permit is required for dealing with them but that DEP may require something and that DEP generally prefers that blowdowns remain in place.Waine said that 30 Mile River Watershed Association has an article about this in their recent newsletter.

The Board resumed consideration of the Rhoads proposal. Based on its observations on site and on Ms. Rhoads’ verbal representations, and on a site sketch she presented, the Board made Findings of Fact Pursuant to Section 16.D. of the Shoreland Zoning Ordinance, and voted 4 – 0 to authorize Creston to issue a permit for the project contingent on a favorable finding when he plots the GPS shot outlined above.

The meeting adjourned at 7:30 PM
