The city council in Washington City has voted to become a non-pledging member of UTOPIA, the first city to do so since the moratorium on new members expired in July. The council was split on the decision and Qwest was, as usual, present to protest membership. City manager Roger Carter said the city could consider becoming a pledging member at a future date should the city want to accelerate construction. As a non-pledging member, Washington City would not see network construction until at least 2012 when UTOPIA goes revenue-positive though there are several other non-pledging cities ahead of them.
Nothing that I know of. If you know of something upcoming, drop me a line so I can get it posted.
