Late breaking news from Princeton Internet MLP (via Connectingprinceton.com):
The Princeton board of selectmen has agreed to postpone both the Sept. 8 Information Session and the Sept. 13 Special Town Meeting regarding the plan to fund construction of a town-owned Internet network until an official proposal from Comcast is submitted for review and analysis by town officials. Comcast representatives and Princeton officials will meet Sept. 7 to begin initial discussions regarding an anticipated proposal to the town for a cable television franchise, including high speed Internet service.
The board believes postponement of these two events allows time for Comcast to complete its due diligence allowing residents the opportunity to better compare the choices available and understand the risks, costs and services available. A new date for a Special Town Meeting will be set as soon as possible once a Comcast proposal has been submitted and reviewed by the appropriate town representatives.
