Council approves highspeed Internet

April 15, 2004

HANCOCK - The Hancock Town Council on Wednesday voted to partner with the Washington County Board of Education to bring high-speed Internet access to the town, Hancock schools and the Hancock Library.

Last month, school board employees asked the town council to consider using the Taliaferro Avenue Water Tower as a possible site for a wireless antenna that would provide the high-speed service.

Hancock Mayor Daniel A. Murphy said he thought the town council believed that the request was a good idea.

The town council unanimously approved the request Wednesday. The network will be part of the school board's plan to improve aging computer infrastructure in schools.

It also will provide a communications link with the Hancock Police Department, the Washington County Sheriff's Department and the Hagerstown Police Department, school officials have said.
