Step One For Better Broadband Connectivity in PA
With the latest influx of funding, The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is collecting broadband information from consumers to create updated maps that display fixed and mobile broadband availability, as well as lack of access. Township officials and their residents are encouraged to participate and tell the FCC about their access or lack of access. These maps will drive broadband funding.
Consumers can share their broadband experience by filling out a short form by clicking on this link https://consumercomplaints.fcc.gov/hc/en-us/requests/new?ticket_form_id=360001440131 and detailing their lack of connectivity and uploading supporting documents. If you have trouble filing out the webform, you can call 888-225-5322. (Editor's note: only the federal government would ask you to upload forms to document you don’t have internet connectivity...use the phone!)
For those with service, The FCC has a Speed Test app available that can be downloaded and run to demonstrate actual broadband speeds for both mobile and in-home broadband networks. In addition to showing your network performance test results, the app also provides the test results to the FCC as part of its Measuring Broadband America Program.

Broadband Affordable Connectivity Program
Too many families can't afford high-speed internet service. Monthly internet bills, installation fees, and computer costs add up. When high-speed internet is available, it's not always accessible.
The Affordable Connectivity Program tackles this problem. It helps low-income families pay for internet service. Families can get up to $30 per month. And they can get $100 to help pay for a desktop, laptop, or tablet computer.
Americans can qualify for free high-speed internet through this program.

Boggs Township Cleanup Day
Boggs Township cleanup day was a success! RES Coal provides dumpsters through Hugil. Novey’s gives a discount on their dumpster.

We would like to give a big thank you to RES Coal, Novey’s and our residents for making the 2022 clean up day successful!
Dimeling Bridge Set to Reopen on Tuesday
Clearfield, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is alerting area drivers that the Dimeling Bridge on Route 2024 (Old Erie Pike) is expected to reopen to traffic by the end of the day Tuesday, August 23. The bridge spans Clearfield Creek, near the village of Dimeling in Boggs Township. The 244-foot bridge carries an average of more than 650 vehicles each day.
Once the bridge is open to traffic, the detour that's been in place since mid-April will be lifted. That detour made use of Route 153 (Crooked Sewer Road) and Route 2023 (Glen Richey Highway).
Rehabilitation work activity included hydro-demolition of the concrete bridge deck, concrete repairs, latex surfacing, strip seal replacement, concrete beam end repairs, paving, guiderail, and miscellaneous items. Clearwater Construction, Inc. of Mercer, PA was the contractor for this $944,000 job.
