Thanks to some foot-dragging by Uncle Sam, UTOPIA construction in Centerville has been put on hold until the Phase II funding comes through. This isn't the first time either; Phase I cities experienced some months-long delays while the loan application was being processed. The delays now are related to releasing the funds, currently six weeks overdue.
I can only imagine the frustration in Centerville right now. UTOPIA just finished putting in conduit and boxes for months only to be held up on the actual running of fiber optic cable. I'm sure that residents of Perry, however, are glad to see construction start up in the meantime.
