Fiber-optic line to O’Fallon’s city facilities delayed again

At the request of city staff, the City Council has tabled for a second time the second reading and vote for passage of Bill No. 7194 until July 9. 

The reason for the delay is to finalize contract language from the proposed vendor prior to a vote.  The bill is sponsored by Ward 1 council members Dave Hinman and Deana Smith.

The city of O’Fallon has proposed leasing a 24-strand fiber-optic cable from Everstream Solutions, LLC [Everstream], to connect city hall to six locations, including the Justice Center, Renaud Center, Environmental Services building, Dames Park, a small city building/salt dome on Glengate Estates Drive near Feise Road, and Westhoff Park. The 10-year total cost would be $455,000.

Mid Rivers Newsmagazine published detailed stories about this on May 29 and June 14.
