Public Comment Period-2019 VATI Grant
The County of Augusta is soliciting public comment before pursuing applications for the 2019 Virginia Telecommunications Initiative (VATI) Grant implemented by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development.

The County received a proposal to partner for fiber projects in the areas of Rt. 252 from Arbor Hill to Middlebrook and in the Deerfield Valley Road and Marble Valley Road vicinities of the Deerfield community.
The Board of Supervisors will hear public comment on the grant at the November 28, 2018 regular meeting.
